The 75th Annual General Meeting of the Coal Point Progress Association will be celebrated with a social afternoon tea on June 20th, 2-4pm at Progress Hall, 197 Skye Point Rd. Everyone is welcome, especially our long term and new members. There’s 108 members in our community. It would be great to catch up face to face.
This momentous milestone for our community group will be complete with election of office bearers, reflections on the year that was (and wasn’t it a doozey!), along with plans for the future.
The CPPA has played the role of community glue for ¾ of a century with ebbs and flows of activity and enthusiasm dependent on the energy, activation and incentives of the time.
One of the hopes for the year ahead is to revive using the hall for more social activities such music and entertainment. The stage, sprung floor, acoustics and air-con make it a very useful space for gregarious gatherings of locals. To put together a social calendar a small group of friendly, motivated people are needed to get on board the CPPA bus to help steer the course and the AGM is the time to get your ticket.
Another topic of casual conversation will be the role and upkeep of the Progress Hall. As one of the few community groups in the City that actually owns its hall and covers all of the upkeep and maintenance costs, it would be good to reflect on how we can make better use of this valuable community asset.
The formal proceedings of the AGM will be 2-3pm.
The celebratory social will be 3-4pm.
The AGM agenda for the 20/6/21 is:
- Attendance & Apologies
- Confirmation of minutes of previous Annual General Meeting held 17/5/20
