What are the boundaries of the Downtown Neighborhood?

Though DANA meetings have been held at different venues, at present we meet at the
Isaak Walton Clubhouse in Fairmount Park,
across from the golf course.
Are DANA meetings open to the public?
DANA’s meetings are open to the public, though only members may vote on motions, resolutions, or during annual election for officers. New members are always welcome.
Why a duck ?
Early in the formation of DANA, one of our founding members rescued a duckling from Fairmount Park. She had an injured wing, but was soon nursed back to health. She was adopted by DANA as a reminder to take action in your neighborhood when necessary.
