Join us this Friday to learn more about The Rotary Foundation from Dunwoody Past President Jennie Stipick - we'll be meeting in person at LeMeridien or you can join us via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86202979419.
Did you buy a ticket yet? Did your friends? Time is running out for the first drawing in the Whiskey & Cigar Pairing Raffle. Tickets are on sale now at www.whiskey-raffle.com. Only 16 of 100 tickets remain at this writing for the drawing that takes place October 31. People can buy tickets for our November and December drawings too - featuring a Shortbarrel and a Blanton Original Single Barrel bourbon with matching cigars.
This month's featured prize is a Weller Antique 107 Bourbon with two "paired to the bourbon" specialty cigars. For just a $15 ticket, you can have a chance at a $150 bottle of whiskey.
Be sure to share the link with anyone you think would enjoy this special opportunity - proceeds will support the Rotary Club of Dunwoody's work in the community and around the world!
Remember, individuals MUST be 21 years old to participate.
We are excited to be supporting the Marines and their annual Toys for Tots campaign again this year. Everyone is being encouraged to shop early for Christmas this year because of issues in the supply chain - and we'd like to encourage you to do early shopping too! When we gather for our Holiday luncheon on Friday, December 10, we'll be collecting bikes, toys and games to help make this holiday season great for needy local youth! You will also be able to drop off your Toys for Tots gifts even if you're not attending the luncheon live - more details on that as we move into December!
Contact Jim Glass if you have any questions.
As you probably know, we have been supporting Malachi's Storehouse throughout the pandemic - we donated money early on budgeted for Rotary meetings that didn't happen and President Carter named Malachi's as the charity that would receive money this year in honor of our speakers. And we helped move 4,800 pounds of food to Malachi's earlier this year in a local "farm to families" program.
Now there's an opportunity for Rotarians to volunteer at Malachi's Storehouse. They are looking to prepare bags of pantry staples in advance of their Wednesday distribution. The volunteer shift is 4 - 6 on Tuesdays. They also need some volunteers on Wednesdays. It would be great if volunteers would be willing to join our team on a regular basis! MALACHI'S STOREHOUSE St. Patrick's Episcopal Church, 4755 North Peachtree Rd, Dunwoody, Georgia 30338
You can see more opportunities and sign up for volunteer shifts on Malachi's website. And let me know if you have questions or you're ready to sign up so we can keep track of the work we're doing as Rotarians to make a difference in the community.
Your good friend,
Kobelah Svensen Bennah, Community Service Director, RCD
As we announced at a mid-October meeting, Past President Jennie Springer's husband Dennis passed away earlier this month. He was 83 years old. Jennie and Dennis were very active members of the Dunwoody Family of Rotary.
A memorial service will take place on Wednesday, November 23 at 1:30 pm at Peachtree Christian Church, 1580 Peachtree Road, Atlanta (actually sits on corner of 14th and Spring). Keep Jennie and her family in your prayers.
For more than 20 years, we have been responsible for keeping the traffic island across from the Dunwoody Library looking good! Thanks to the folks who continued that tradition last week, under the guidance of Ranger Fred Bounds.
We were pleased to have some Dunwoody alumni join us for Thirsty Thursday last week! Check out the photos with Juan Lago, Scott Jennings, Harvey Rosenzweig and Jeff Priluck. And watch for more alumni invites ... Once a Dunwoody Rotarian, always a Dunwoody Rotarian!
Here's a way to keep up with all that's happening with the Rotary Club of Dunwoody. If you would like to add an event - or add a story to the bulletin, send an email to Jackie Cuthbert at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday evening.
