THE Tomaree Ratepayers and Residents Association (TRRA) will hold its next meeting at the Nelson Bay Bowling Club from 7pm on Monday, May 12.
Port Stephens ALP candidate Kate Washington will guest speak.
Topics of discussion for the night will include the closure of Tomaree Lodge and the Stockton Centre.
"There's been a lot of talk in the media about the Stockton Centre and its proposed closure," TRRA acting secretary Dick Appleby said.
"Little has been heard about Tomaree Lodge.
"Tomaree Lodge has been a part of our community for a long time, it cares for some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
"And yet, the State Government has announced that all disability residential care facilities are to be closed, including Tomaree Lodge.
"What will happen to these people and what will happen to this iconic site if the present facility is closed?"
Ms Washington, acting on behalf of the Stockton Hospital Welfare Association, will address the meeting about the Tomaree Lodge and the Stockton Centre.
