When and where does DANA meet?

DANA meets on the third Monday of every month, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. The group is dark in July and  August.  In August we participate with the City-wide National Night Out Event. 

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.
