Service Opportunity
Do You Have Your Toys for Tots Shopping Done?

There are only 16 shopping days left until the holiday luncheon. For many years, Dunwoody Rotarians have been very generous in the Marines Toys for Tots Drive. This year has been especially tough on families.

So look for toys, bikes and games and bring them to the Holiday luncheon on December 2! With your generosity, we can make this holiday season special for needy local youth!

Thanks for Your Service
Dunwoody Takes to the Basketball Courts

Last Friday, Dunwoody Rotarians joined Georgia Special Olympics for a basketball clinic and tournament at Sequoyah Middle School - attending by Special Olympics athletes from many local middle schools. Thanks to Rick Woods, Kathy Brandt and Fred Bounds for coordinating this event and for everyone who joined the team last Friday!

Your Fundraising Support Is Important!
Don't Forget Whiskey Raffle #3 and the Dunwoody Golf Tournament!

Just because the second Exclusive Whiskey Raffle drawing will be over tomorrow night doesn't mean our work is over.  We still have raffle #3 for a bottle of Blanton's Gold so continue to share the QR code with your friends.

We have also kicked off our sponsor campaign for the 2023 FORE! the Memories Golf Tournament to be held on May 15, 2023 at St. Marlo Country Club.  The website is live and ready for sponsor and golfer sign up - you and anyone interested can visit 2023 Event - FORE! The Memories (rcdgolftournament.com)! It includes photos and results from last year too.
