Bi-Annual Meetings every spring and fall, please check for meeting announcements and to request email notifications.

We want to share with folks that we have a new website!  Check it out and let us know what you think

Also, we're hustling to raise funds so that we can purchase insurance for events like Porchfest, the Annual Tree Lighting, Harvest Fest, Winter Solstice, and others! So far we've raised $1,000 out of the $1,500 needed. We're almost there, but our deadline is July 24th! Please chip in, lend a hand and help our neighborhood continue to have wonderful events. Here's a few different ways you can help:

- Become a member, varying levels, it's tax deductible -- Click here 

- Donate to the fundraising campaign, it's tax deductible -- Click here

- Spread the word and join us for a great meal at Elsmere non-profit night for DCNA on Tuesday July 23rd, 4 - 9pm -- Click here

ALL FUNDS raised from all of the above links will go directly toward our $1500 goal and purchasing insurance. If online donations aren't your thing, you can also send checks to Deering Center Neighborhood Association c/o Scott Segal, 15 Alba St. Portland, ME 04103. If you have any questions, please email us at

Lastly, if you have any neighborhood events or goings on that you'd like us to share on Facebook, our website and/or add to the DCNA calendar, please let us know.

Happy Summer, DCNA
