The Hackett Community Association will be taking a break and will not meet again until February 2017. In the meantime we thank all Hackett residents and businesses for their support and we wish all a fulfilling and memorable Christmas and New Year break.
DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT AS IT IT COULD BE THE BEST WE HAVE EVER ORGANISED.
WE LITERALLY HAVE EVERYTHING FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS.
UNLESS THE WEATHER TURNS FOUL ON US IT WILL BE A A VERY MEMORABLE DAY AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO CONNECT WITH YOUR FELLOW RESIDENTS.
The new committee for 2016-17 was elected at the meeting and James Walker, who recently retired after 13 years with the Committee in various roles, including four years as Chair, was awarded Honorary Life Membership in recognition of his long service with the committee.
Guest speaker Ms Clare McGrath, Vice President of the North Canberra division of ACT Neighbourhood Watch, spoke on the operations of Neighbourhood Watch. Clare encouraged residents to look out for our neighbours and suggested that we should put out and take in their bins, when they are on holidays, report any unusual activity such as unknown cars parked in the street and generally connect with our neighbours as this is the most effective way of reducing burglaries. And it was great for neighbourly harmony.
Mr John Carty, local resident, former senior mathematics teacher and current contributor to the Australian Mathematics Competition, spoke on the benefits of mathematics skills and outlined the various programs to assist less advantaged families.
