September Meeting: Saturday, September 12, 2015 at the Community & Family Life Recreation Center at Lyon Park, 1313 Halley Street, Durham 27707.
Meeting Topic/Guest Speaker: "Appearance Matters – Keep Durham Beautiful," presented by Tania Dautlick, Executive Director, Keep Durham Beautiful, Inc. (http://keepdurhambeautiful.org) Why does appearance matter? The appearance of a community affects the value of people’s private property. How a community looks affects how many jobs are brought into the community. The beauty of a community, which seems like just an additional ingredient, is instead a VITAL ingredient to crime, education, real estate, job creation and so much more.
