In April 1984, 35 business leaders in the Atlanta area came together to put Dunwoody, Georgia on the Rotary International map. From the start, it was the mission of our charter members to "successfully execute multi-faceted, highly visible programs and activities designed to contribute substantially to the ideals and aims of Rotary". They wanted to make a difference in the local community and around the world.
Thirty five years later, this is still the mission of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody, Georgia, USA. We can look at our local community and see the difference we have made. Our service projects address literacy, education, health, first responders, and other critical issues both in our community and around the world. In addition, the fellowship we share has enriched every member's life. We celebrate each other, work hard, and have fun together as we look for even more opportunities to provide service to those in need.
We have three charter members who are still members of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody:
The Rotary Club of Dunwoody has a strong sense of family. We want to be there to help club members, families and friends to celebrate … birthdays, promotions, graduations, birth of new children or grandchildren, career successes and more. And, we want to be there to lend a helping hand and provide encouragement … in the event of illness, hard times or loss of a family member.
Dottie Toney leads our Caring Hands Committee; every Dunwoody Rotarian is an ex-officio member. Often a Rotarian in our club is aware of what is happening - and we count on our members to reach out to Dottie Toney and/or our Club President so we can act appropriately.
