Calling all members.

Run Dunwoody wants to encourage the formation of teams, and we need your help in making this happen. We are interested in stimulating any preexisting rivalries and want your input on which rivalries to focus on and the best ways to trigger those rivalries. Some examples might be college rivalries, neighborhood competitions, or possibly  strong business rivalries.
If you are part of a pre-existing rivalry, we want to know about it and get your thoughts on the best ways to trigger that rivalry, so that we can get more runners to sign up as a way of supporting their side of the rivalry.
Please email Rick Otness with your thoughts at


During this past 2014-2015 school year, Kingsley Elementary Charter School participated in a year-long Strong4Life Program.  This program, presented by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, educates and inspires children and their families about making healthy lifestyle choices in areas of activity, nutrition, sleep, etc.  This program was funded by the Rotary Club of Dunwoody.

On Friday, April 17th, Kingsley was awarded the Principal’s Challenge Trophy for their participation in RunDunwoody14 with Rotary Members Kathy Brandt, Angie Duprey and Nancy Jester on hand to present the trophy during morning announcements.  On May 15th, Rotarian Angie Duprey was able to volunteer at Kingsley’s end of year Field Day as the culmination of the Strong for Life Program, and this is where it came to her attention regarding a project in need of support.

Kingsley Charter’s Math Classroom needs remodeling and our help.  Fifth grade educator, Ronn Colanino is looking to create a Super Math Lab for his students to create an ideal teaching and learning environment.  His dream is to give his students a classroom they LOVE to be in, LOVE to learn in and one that can offer resources otherwise not available.

Please take a look at their funding page. This school has many children in the English as a Second Language program, as well as 52% of the population qualify for free and reduced lunch.  They NEED resources to create a better learning environment.  This program will give students the best opportunity to succeed as they matriculate to Peachtree Charter Middle School and then on to Dunwoody High.

Principal Brent McBride and 5th grade teacher Ronn Colanino will be guests at our June 19th meeting, and they welcome any questions or comments regarding their project.


Image Thanks to Dottie Toney for her great work as the Caring Hands Chair as she hands over responsibilities to Carol Gage. 


If you hear of a member celebrating a special event or in need of some special care, please pass along the information to Carol.  She can be reached at (404) 376-3963 or emailed at


Blue and yellow cards will be on the tables at Friday meetings if you would like to jot down a quick note.  Carol will be out of town during the month of July, so she will be assisted by Kemi A.  


We are considering undertaking a couple of projects this year that may require Quickbooks or Database skills. This is a general appeal to the club members to let us know if you have basic skills in either of these areas. Please call Rick Otness at (770) 715-9251 or email him at if you have basic skills in either of these areas and might be willing to apply them to a project. Thanks!!!

I would like to congratulate you on being selected to participate in the Innovative and Flexible Rotary Club pilot beginning 1 July 2015 and ending 30 June 2017. This is an exciting opportunity for your club to experiment with changes to the Standard Rotary Club Constitution and bylaws.  To remain relevant to prospective as well as current members, it is important that Rotary continues to explore new ways to engage members and enhance club operations. With this acceptance, your club is joining a select group of clubs from all Rotary countries and geographical regions and all of Rotary’s thirty-four (34) zones.
We look forward to working with you over the next two years as you experiment with some different alternatives. Your club should begin working over the next 30 days to start implementing changes on 1 July 2015.
Over the next few weeks you will receive more information regarding when and how your club will be evaluated and measured regarding the impact your innovation has on:
·         membership types
·         club operations
·         member activities and engagement
·         sustained membership growth and retention
·         improved member diversity
·         increased community and international service
·         increased support of The Rotary Foundation
·         overall club effectiveness
Good luck in your efforts over these next two years and thank you for agreeing to be a part of this exciting opportunity.
Best regards,
Anja Van Ostrand

TImagehe Rotaract Club of Atlanta is a social, professional development and community service organization for young professionals between the ages of 21 and 30 in the Metro Atlanta Area and is affiliated with Rotary International and the Rotary Club of Dunwoody. Similar to a Rotary club, the Rotaract club holds bi-weekly meetings for members and guests to which it invites a variety of speakers, and members frequently get together for community service projects and social events.

Perhaps the best known four points in Rotary are those of The Four Way Test:

Of the things we think, say or do

1.Is it the TRUTH?
2.Is it FAIR to all concerned?
4.Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
