Yet another annual general meeting was held by the Dutch Australian Cultural Centre, on the premises of the Consulate-General of the Netherlands, in Bondi Junction, on Wednesday, 3 October.
Among the matters raised: The need to attract younger members, as the object of the D.A.C.C. is to preserve the heritage brought to Australia, for the generations that follow the migrants who came here, from the Netherlands.
The chairman lives on the central coast, where, yesterday, there were the first of the bush fires, disrupting not only the traffic on the freeway and the old Pacific Highway but the trains as well. He had some difficulties getting to the meeting and, no doubt, even more getting back home.
