Community

Dunwoody Rotary is committed to making a difference in our local community - filling needs not just in Dunwoody, but throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area.

  • We celebrate the City of Dunwoody - joining our Dunwoody neighbors in the annual 4th of July parade as a parade sponsor with both a float in the parade and a hot dog and baked goods stand at the family festival.
  • We provide volunteer support for the award-winning Dunwoody Arts Festival.
  • We support the Women and Children's Day Shelter of Atlanta - with school supplies, clothing, and special needs as they arise.
  • We have purchased wheelchairs through locally-based FODAC, and funded wheelchair repairs for those who cannot afford it.
  • We recognize the leading civil servants in the police, fire, and teaching arenas.
  • We support Challenger baseball and the Georgia Special Olympics.



Just as families gather for those old-fashioned Fourth of July picnics, the Dunwoody Family of Rotary joins the local community to celebrate ... with a parade and our traditional hot dog booth and bake sale!

Hot dogs, cold sodas and fresh baked goods go for just $1 each, and we salute those who have served our country by making the food our treat.

Many of us walk in the parade, distributing patriotic trinkets to the children lining the street.

It's a great experience ... and a great way to launch a new Rotary year!

The Dunwoody Arts Festival was voted the "Best New Event" by the Southeast Festivals and Events Association. The Rotary Club of Dunwoody serves as the major supporting partner of the annual two-day event. We welcome the artisans to the beautiful City of Dunwoody, help them with set-up and breakdown of their colorful exhibits, and serve as ambassadors to Dunwoody and the greater metro area. After the Festival, the Rotary Club of Dunwoody distributes proceeds from the Chairs for Charity auction at the Festival to the participating local schools.

For many years, the traffic island on Chamblee Dunwoody Road has been affectionately known as "Monroe Park" in honor of a former member of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody who provided the leadership to keep this tiny part of Dunwoody maintained and beautiful. At least quarterly throughout the year we gather at the "Park" to pull weeds, prune bushes, and lay pine bark as well as share good fellowship and a few donuts. Caring for this small part of our world is a point of pride for all Dunwoody Rotarians.
