Calling for Soapbox Derby Volunteers on Friday June 3, 2016
                This year the Rotary Club of Dunwoody is sponsoring the Super Kids Day portion of the regional finals of the Soapbox Derby. The day before the competition all cars must be certified and drivers registered. During Friday morming, Special needs childeren will be given the opportunity to drive race cars over the down hill course.  In addition to donating $1,500 towards the cost of the event, Rotary needs volunteers to assist with these runs. The volunteers will get kids seated in their cars, act as starters, and generally asist with the event. There will be two shifts, one from 8 AM to 10:30 AM with another shift from 10 AM to 12:30 PM. Please contact Rick Otness ( ) if you will be available to help. This event will count as a make-up for any Friday meeting missed between May20th and June17.
                The winners of the Dunwoody/Northeast Georgia Soap Box Derby will compete at the Soapbox Derby's International competition in Akron Ohio on July 16th. The regionals being held in Dunwoody on June 3rd and 4th will determine who will represent the region.

Last minute Volunteers...

                Please email Rick otness ( ) if your schedule has changed and you can now volunteer from 9 AM to 1 Pm on this Friday (June 3, 2016) to be a buddy of a special needs child at the SuperKids event for the Soapbox Derby. As you will recall the Rotary Club of Dunwoody is sponsoring this event for Special Needs children. The children will get to race in actual Soapbox derby cars with the cars driver. This is an exciting event for the special needs kids.

                We signed up a number of volunteers to pair up (one on one) with a special needs child. Some of those initial volunteers have had last minute changes in their schedules which have caused them to be unable to volunteer. We are looking for a couple of volunteers who may have wanted to volunteer, originally had conflicts with their schedules, but now happily find themselves available.



The Rotary Club of Dunwoody’s two main fundraisers, RunDunwoody and the Governor’s Ball, are projected to raise approximately $75,000 this year.  These funds are used to support our local and international charitable efforts.  This year we will begin accepting grant applications on a quarterly basis rather than the previous annual basis.  The selection criteria for grants include:
  • Align with the Rotary Club of Dunwoody service focus – Public Health, Public Safety, and Education, both locally and globally.
  • Build, expand, and leverage relationships with community partners aligning financial support with Rotarian volunteer support/opportunities where possible.
  • Extent to which project will have sustainable impact in the community served, locally or globally.
The grant application form can be found on the home page of the website under the selection entitled “Bulletins”. The application form must be fully completed and signed by a Rotarian and at least two board members.  The next deadline for the applications is February 26, 2016. 
The members of the grant committee will evaluate the applications based upon the criteria stated above and make a recommendation to the board.  The members of the committee are: Carter Stout, Patti Bunker, Tina Philpot, Brian Harper, Mike Parks and Lorri Christopher.  If you have any questions then please contact any member of the Grant Committee.


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?  

If you can't remember your Dunwoody password or ID, send an email to Carter Stout . He can send your ID and reset your password. There's a lot of info in the Admin section of the site that can come in handy -- especially member contact info! Don't miss out!
