Mark Your Calendars for July

We will not be meeting this Friday or next - but plan to be back in person at the Dunwoody Country Club on July 10 to install Ardy and his Board, and on Thursday, July 16 at the Country Club to celebrate the great year we have had with President Cathie and her team. You can read below about how we plan to come back live and about how the District recognized our work at last week's District 6900 awards celebration.

Dunwoody Captures Best Club of the Year and the Decade (2011-20) Titles

At District 6900's celebration event last Saturday, our club was recognized as Category III's Club of the Year and Club of the Decade! Congratulations to everyone who helped make this happen. Special thanks to the Club Presidents who led us in this decade - Sidney Browning, Laura Kann, Susan Schwall, Harvey Rosenzweig, Scott Jennings, Lorri Christopher, Tina Philpott, Rick Otness, Rick Woods and Cathie Brumfield.  The District has recognized Clubs of the Decade for three decades now - and Dunwoody captured the banner for all three decades!

Congratulations to Kathy Brandt!

The Rotary Foundation recognizes a special group of Rotarians around the world each year for their active service on behalf of the Foundation. A Rotary district may nominate one person to receive the Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service. It does not recognize giving, but actual personal service to the Foundation for a long period of time. It is the second highest award you may receive from The Rotary Foundation. And to be eligible to receive the highest Foundation honor, you must have received the Citation for Meritorious Service.

This year, District 6900 nominated our own Kathleen Brandt to receive this high honor from The Rotary Foundation for her many years of work on the Global Grant Scholar program. The program focuses on finding scholars who will make a long-term difference in the world.

Kathy has served on the district scholarship committee for 11 years - as Chair since the 2011-12 Rotary year.

Celebrating Us!

She was joined by Hoshi Daruwalla, Rick Otness, Freddy, and of course, Chief Ranger Fred Bounds.
