Hi All, It is already that time of year and our Annual General Meeting is on Tuesday 26th November. Please join us from 7pm in the small meeting room for a glass of wine, beer or soft drink before we move onto the business at 7.30pm. The agenda is on the website and the Event on our Facebook page. Although I plan to continue as an active member of the Community Group I will be standing down as Chair and the election of new officers will be part of the order business at the AGM.
Topics at the AGM As well as the election of officers we will use the AGM to review our many successes from this year and look forward to 2020.
As always, if you would like to recap our previous newsletters for context around this one, they are here: past newsletters

Storm Water diversion from Matakana Valley Rd and MVR repairs The road works in the village have completed and this is a fantastic result for everyone involved.
Safety around the village It has taken a while but we are making progress with our dialogue with Auckland Transport. At last we are talking to 'humans' rather than taking a ticket number in a long queue. This is an area that I am particularly passionate about and I will continue to work on as part of the MCG. Community Fund Raising We are hugely grateful to a number of sponsors for their generous donations. This will help continue with the many projects the MCG sponsors including the beautification of the village landscape and the maintenance of the free car park.
Any further donations should be made directly into the MCG Bank Account Matakana Community Group - 12 3095 0186234 00
You can set up a regular monthly amount via your internet banking. You can also talk to your accountant about the benefits of giving to a charity as donations over $5.00 are tax deductible.
Once you have decided to give a contribution could you please email out treasurer Fiona Strathern on email@example.com to let her know or contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to contribute by cash or cheque. Many thanks People and Social
