Oakville DA One-Year Anniversary Celebration

Oakville DA will be celebrating our one-year anniversary as Group 12516 next week. To celebrate this milestone our group has decided to have an open meeting on Thursday, September 29th from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. followed by tea, cake and some non-sweet/gluten-free options.

This open meeting will be a panel of three speakers on the theme of gratitude. Non-DA people (i.e. spouses, friends, etc.) are welcome to attend.

When: Thursday, September 29th, 7:30-9:00 p.m.
Where: St. Simon’s Anglican Church (entry off parking lot, side door), 1450 Litchfield Road, Oakville, ON L6H 5P4
Litchfield is off of White Oaks Blvd., which is off of Trafalgar Road. Across from Sheridan College.

There are convenient connections via GO Bus from the Oakville GO Train station timed to make it to the meeting by 7:30 p.m. The best stop would be at Trafalgar and Upper Middle Road (one stop past Sheridan College).

In the alternative direction there is a GO bus originating in Brampton that runs along Trafalgar Road.
