Latest News from DAC


Greetings! As the warm weather of summer approaches, we are excited to share some progress on a few of our DAC initiatives. I am happy to report that we have reached resolution with the city regarding our Rental Hall permit. Our permit will be reinstated by the time you read this, and this is a very positive step. This will allow us to reinstate some of our programming that we’ve set aside, and also give us flexibility to rent out our space as we desire. Overall, this is a very positive step for us, and I am very excited to put this chapter behind us. The planning and preparation for Danish Day continues to go forward. Our committees are gathering volunteers, organizing the food and drink menus, and laying out the site plan for Danish Day. There will be more information to come, but we are excited to see everyone on June 2! Mark your calendars. ...More
