No Meeting This Friday - Join Us at the Dunwoody Arts Festival

This weekend, several Dunwoody Rotarians will continue a 10-year tradition of getting up at "O Dark 30" on Saturday to support the Dunwoody Arts Festival. We serve as Ambassadors to the participating artists - helping them get situated on Saturday morning and coordinating breakdown and clean-up on Sunday afternoon. And, we serve as Ambassadors to the community - telling the story of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody to the people attending the Arts Festival as they pass by or stop and visit our booth. The pictures above come from our 2012 Arts Festival appearance - and include Rotarians Patti Bunker, Laura Kann, Fred Brandt and Don Griffing.

If you still want to help us promote our public image this weekend, contact Ardy Bastien or Kathy Brandt. Or just think about stopping by our booth as you stroll along Dunwoody Village Parkway looking for the right Mother's Day gift!

Join D6900 for a Family of Rotary Night at the Braves

You're invited to join District Governor Court Dowis and other District Rotarians for a night of baseball, Star Wars, fireworks and fellowship at the Atlanta Braves game on Friday, May 17. The Braves are playing the Milwaukee Brewers and the game starts at 7:20 pm.

Sign up at the District 6900 website. Cost to members, family and guests will be only $20 per person, including a hot dog and soft drink. All seats are in our Rotary Block; seating is first come first serve or swap to sit with your club.

There will be a Rotarian just outside the “Chop House” gate at the stadium with your pre-purchased tickets from 6 pm to 7 pm. After that time your tickets will be at the Braves “will call” window.

Game Highlights:

  • Star Wars Night - Pregame … Join us for Star Wars Night at SunTrust Park. Wear your Star Wars best and visit The Battery Atlanta Plaza before the game for special character appearances & photo ops.
  • Friday Night Fireworks … Following every Friday night game, the sky above SunTrust Park lights up with the #1 rated fireworks show in the Southeast! Every show is different. See them all. | Presented By Georgia Lottery
  • Friday Red Out …For each Friday home game during the 2019 season your Atlanta Braves will be wearing their home red jerseys, so we're encouraging all fans in attendance to wear their red as well. Let's make it a Red Out!

DG Court hopes to see you there!

Send a Personalized Greeting to GRSP Alumni Jasmine

Jasmine Zhou was our GRSP student in 2009-10. Jasmine is from China and was hosted by Rotarian Jim Cantrell and his wife Kay Stewart. She is pictured with her husband Simon Ming, Jim and Kay at a reception when the couple came to visit in 2011.

Past RCD members Don and Marj Griffing will be visiting with Jasmine during a planned trip to China in early June. Don has offered to collect video greetings from individuals and present them to her on a USB drive when they meet. If you would like to participate please let Rick Otness know. Either email Rick at otness_r@mindspring.com , or call Rick at 770-715-9251 to alert him to your interest. He will email instructions on how to create and then get the individual videos to Don Griffing.

Save the Date - June 27 at the Dunwoody Country Club

Plan to join us for a social event on Thursday evening, June 27 at the Dunwoody Country Club, where we will

  • Raise another glass to the Rotary Club of Dunwoody and our 35-year history of making a difference
  • Celebrate and say goodbye to the current Rotary year under the leadership of President Rick and his Board of Directors.
  • Welcome in Cathie Brumfield as our 2019-20 President, as we install our new officers and directors for next year.

It's a great opportunity for fun, food and fellowship - and we hope that you and your guest will join us. Watch for more details in the coming weeks.
