Now is the Time to ...

  • Get ready for Thirsty Thursday - tomorrow night at Porter Brew & Que Brewery, 5486 Chamblee Dunwoody Road. The fun begins at 5:30 pm! Invite a friend or a former Dunwoody Rotarian.
  • Buy your tickets for our club's first Exclusive Whiskey and Cigar Pairing raffle - and encourage your friends and whiskey/cigar enthusiasts to do the same. Only 11 days left until the first drawing on October 31!
  • Think about how you'd like to be part of Dunwoody's GRSP Leadership weekend in January. 
  • Think about what you might do to support The Rotary Foundation and End Polio Now. Jennie Stipick will be speaking to us about The Rotary Foundation at next week's meeting.
  • Include extra toys in your holiday shopping list - for our annual Toys for Tots project with the US Marines AND a new partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and Dunwoody police. More about both in future newsletters but you can get a headstart now.

Thirsty Thursday
Join in the Thirsty Thursday Fun Tomorrow Night at 5:30 PM

This Thursday, October 21, we welcome you  to join us for Thirsty Thursday in a new venue - Porter Brew & Que Brewery, 5486 Chamblee Dunwoody Road. The fun begins at 5:30 pm! Bring a friend or a former Dunwoody Rotarian. Hope to see you there!

Gearing Up for GRSP Leadership Weekend in January

We are gearing up for one of our major undertakings of the Rotary year - the 2022 GRSP Leadership Conference! We expect about 43 international students from colleges and universities all over the state of Georgia to join us in Dunwoody over the Martin Luther King weekend (January 14-16) and would welcome the help of all Dunwoody Rotarians and members of our Family of Rotary. There is an opportunity for everyone to participate - we'd like to mention two:

  • Join the Planning Committee next Wednesday, October 27 at 7:00 pm via Zoom. Join in at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89350291662?pwd=TURJY3E2eWdCRHRsUFJpWGVUbnROUT09
  • Consider being a host family for the Leadership Weekend. This involves providing a place to sleep, breakfast and some transportation for Friday night through Sunday morning - generally for two of the international students. We are asking that students provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within three days before the conference to attend, and that host parents be vaccinated.

Contact the Bardens if you'd like more information on the weekend.
