No meeting this week; join us for Thirsty Thursday at Dunwoody Tavern, 5:30 pm. Then read about
Recognizing Our Club Members at Year-End
At our end of the year event, President Ardy recognized Griff Ransom as Rotarian of the Year - an award well deserved just on the basis of his work as our Sargeant-at-Arms ... rising to the challenges of new meeting places and Zoom meetings while still helping us make a difference in the community. Ardy recognized Peyton Adkins Graham as our Rookie of the Year, for her dedication to projects and work on Facebook! Ardy also recognized several club members with David Baker awards, in honor of our founding Rotarian:
Recognition from the District
When President Ardy returned from a well-deserved rest in Hawaii, he was greeted by recognition from District 6900 for his great leadership, in the form of a Governor's Citation! Job well done! And, the club received recognition for our generosity:
The district will announce other awards during the August District Celebration in SanDestin.
As we all know, in early June, we lost one of our most significant members - William (Bill) Mulkey. His long term support of Rotary included leadership of the club and district, support of the zone, a passion for the Rotary Foundation, resource guides for all things Rotary, and so much more.
The club plans to honor Bill in two ways:
If you would like to contribute to either (or both) causes, please let us know.
Thank you for your support of Bill – I know his family appreciates any prayers, tributes, or gifts you make.
The Dunwoody Diners are back. On Saturday, July 10, 11 members of the Dunwoody Family of Rotary gathered at Aldo's for drinks and fine food. The food was of course good, the wine was even better, but best of all were the conversations. Thanks to Ken and Sherry Levy for arranging the evening - they were also celebrating their wedding anniversary!
For the newer members of the Rotary Club, Dunwoody Diners tries to meet every 6-8 weeks. Any Rotarian (and guest if he/she desires) gather to break bread and catch up on what is going on in various lives. It is a great way to better get to know club members. Each person pays their own tab, but also contributes $5 toward an eventual gift to the Dunwoody Rotary Charitable Fund. In past years we have generally raised between $200 and $400.
The next gathering will be in late September. Watch for updates in the Bulletin.
Five of Fred's rangers gathered last Saturday morning (before the day heated up) to give a quick face lift to Bounds Garden (the traffic Island located next to Dunwoody Library).The Rotary Club of Dunwoody adopted the intersection approximately 15 years ago and has continued giving it tender loving care.
In a first Hoshi Daruwalla arrived early (8:30), while the rest arrived at a more leisurely paced 9 AM. We weeded, cleaned up trash, and put out new pine straw. When they left, Bounds Garden was again the jewel it has been for the past 15 years. Picture was taken by Baku Daruwalla who was both a Ranger and our photographer, and probably responsible for Hoshi's early arrival).
Chris and Jane Gutschenritter will host the next meeting of the Dunwoody Wine Fellowship. Bring your partner and join us from 5:45 to 7:15 pm on August 10. Please bring a summer wine or an appetizer (finger food) to share.
