We are only a few weeks away from our 22nd annual Governor’s Ball at the Atlanta Athletic Club on Saturday, March 14. The Club counts on this event and RunDunwoody to fund all of the amazing work we do to make a difference in our local community and the world. Historically, the Governor’s Ball funds at least half of what we do. Here are two ideas for how you can help make our Mission Possible:
 
Help us to gather gifts: Gifts for the auction are our main source for revenue at the Governor’s Ball – we need your help in gathering those gifts … trips, restaurants, theater, wine, collectibles. You can download the form on the website – completed forms go to Jackie Cuthbert at cuthbert@mindspring.com.
 
Plan to attend a great party and bring your friends. We promise an evening of fun – open bar, dancing, fellowship and good food. A ballroom full of friends adds to the fun and fundraising opportunity. Since you have already paid for two tickets, plan to attend. Guests are welcome; the cost is $150/person or $300/couple, and you can host a table of 10 for $1,500. Thanks to Lorri Christopher, Yvonne Williams and Bill Woulfin for the table sponsorships we’ve already received!
  • You should have already received your invitation
  • Pick up additional invitations at the regular weekly meeting, and/or send names and addresses for your guests to cuthbert@mindspring.com and we’ll get an invitation out for you. (Note: The database supports the Governor’s Ball does NOT provide an easy way to gather addresses for last year’s guests). There’s also an electronic version of the invitation on the website that you can email it to your potential guests.
  • As you RSVP, we need names and meal selections for each person attending. All RSVPs should be directed to Helen Sempira, using the response card in the invitation we’re mailing or by email to helen@hsempiradds.com
  • Special seating requests should be directed to Lang Wooddy at lang66@comcast.net.
Thanks for your support!
 

 
 

Calling all Volunteers!!

Junior Achievement needs one day from you to help the students from Peachtree Charter Middle School (PCMS) practice using business skills.

Who: Anyone with business experience. The volunteer doesn't have to be a Rotarian, just someone you know who wants to see a new generation of young people embrace and understand the positive sides of business, which doesn't get much play on television or in the movies
When:

Any one of these dates from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM

  • Monday, March  2nd
  • Wednesday, March 11th 
    • Note: This date is the official Rotary Club of Dunwoody Day at the JA Discovery Center at which we hope to have at least 10 members
  • Thursday, March 12th
  •  Friday, March 13th
    • Note: No regular RCD meeting because Governors Ball is on Saturday
What: One day from you mentoring a small team (7-9 students) who will be participating  in a live simulation of individual businesses interacting with each other
Where:            Junior Achievement Discovery Center located at the Georgia World Congress Center
Why:

To give the 532 PCMS sixth grade students a hands-on experience using the business tools and concepts they have been taught during the school year. The school needs ~80 adult volunteers to do thisRotary has committed to gathering at least 20 of those volunteers.

It's Uncle Julio's on Saturday, February 28, 2015

The Dunwoody Diners are gearing up for an evening of good conversations, good wine, and the sharing of a meal together this Saturday at 6:30 PM. By all reports the Mexican cuisine is excellent with the typical bill being ~$55 per person (which includes your tip and a $5 donation to the  Rotary Club of Dunwoody Charitable Fund.). It's a great way to relax and unwind after a tough week. Please give Rick Otness (otness_r@mindspring.com) a heads up by Friday if you are planning to attend, so that we can give the restaurant manager an approximate head 

The restaurant is located at:
1140 Hammond Drive NE
Building K, Suite 100
Sandy Springs, GA 30328

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?
3.Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
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!
