No Regular Meeting This Week
Join Zoom Conversation This Friday about District Grant Opportunity

Each year, District 6900 makes Rotary Foundation grant money available for projects in our community. Clubs need to identify projects and submit an application. Each club is generally eligible for a grant of about $1700 - we have used this for a variety of projects - last year to help fund our holiday book project at Dresden and Kingsley In addition, there is a competitive grant available for up to $10,000, Applications for both types of grants are due by May 15.

This Friday we have no regular meeting but are inviting all interested Dunwoody Rotarians to a Zoom meeting to discuss what we'd like to do with our grant - and what we might consider as a project for a competitive grant. Some of us have held informal chats about serving the Alzheimer's victims and their families, perhaps through a Respite care at a local church.

Please join Louise Barden and others in this initial discussion and bring your ideas and information. Join us on Zoom at 7:30 am at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84704156193?pwd=VTVZUkcwVWU5OUZmSzZmOENNNk82UT09
