This Sunday, April 25, the Rotary Club of Dunwoody will celebrate 37 years of fellowship, fun and making a difference in our community and around the globe. Wow! When I think of all that we have accomplished, we should be celebrating a lot!
Two years ago, our own PDG Bill Mulkey wrote a message recognizing our 35th anniversary. This week, we have updated our story to reflect what we’ve accomplished up to now. Before we share that, I would like to recognize three of our Club’s Charter members who are still with us today – PDG Bill of course, Past President Gary Lane, and our Club Administrator Teak Pacetti. Thanks for being part of the dedication and service that made the history we share here a possibility.
To paraphrase Bill’s message two years ago, “We have completed 37 years of a tradition of excellence in living Rotary's motto of Service Above Self. As our journey continues, let's all be dedicated to continuing that tradition for many years to come.”
We are excited to have the Dunwoody Arts Festival back for Mother's Day weekend 2021!

Several of you have volunteered for Friday and Sunday shifts working with the artists as they set up and break down their booths; we still need for a few more volunteers to fill our commitment there. We are also hosting a booth promoting our organization and work in the community - and need volunteers for Saturday and Sunday. See the details and sign up ...

Please save May 6, 2021 and join the Rotary Club of North Fulton online for its 19th annual celebration of the National Day of Prayer. The service will take place from 7:45 am to 9:00 am.

I have attended several of these inspirational services in person and plan to join the online celebration this year. The featured keynote speaker will be Janine Maxwell, Co-Founder and COO of Heart for Africa - an organization we have supported in partnership with North Fulton.
