ROTARY CLUB OF
|Immediate PP||Cathie Brumfield|
I don't know about you, but I've been thinking November is a special month - a time to celebrate
This week our speaker comes from our very own Dunwoody Family of Rotary, as Robert Hall updates us on where we stand currently in the fight to End Polio Now. Join us live at the Dunwoody Country Club or via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86202979419. And check out the upcoming service opportunities in the articles below.
As we continue our November celebration of The Rotary Foundation, this week's speaker is our own Robert Hall, who currently serves as Rotary International's Vice Chair of the End Polio Now: Countdown to History Campaign Committee. You can join us in person at the Dunwoody Country Club or via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86202979419.
Before joining the Rotary Club of Dunwoody in 1986, Robert has been a member of the Rotary Clubs of Brunswick GA, Milwaukee WI and Baton Rouge LA. He is also an Honorary Member of the Rotary Club of Atlanta GA. Robert is one of Dunwoody's three Past District Governors, and has also served District 6900 as its representative to the Council on Legislation, Long Range Planning Chair, Finance Chair, Major Donor Co-Chair, Rotary Foundation Chair and Director of the Georgia Rotary Student Program.
Last Saturday, ten Dunwoody Rotarians and Rotary Youth Exchange alumnus Daniela donned masks and gloves and spent the morning processing food donations and stocking the Food Pantry shelves at the Community Assistance Center in Sandy Springs. The Food Pantry is open outside for shopping three days a week, and serves about 80 households each of those days. We refilled food racks, refrigerators and freezers for the Monday market, and restocked the pantry shelves. We have committed to volunteering the first Saturdays of December and January - and will decide then whether to commit for longer (I'm guessing we will).
Mark your calendar now and let Jennifer Bowler know if you're planning to come. Our next date is Saturday, December 5. Strict COVID prevention features are in place.

Plan to join us this Saturday, November 14 from 9:00 AM to noon at the Dunwoody Nature Center. We need all the volunteers we can get to help with projects on the property - and your support can help us increase the impact we will have on the Dunwoody Nature Center. The activities involve proper social distancing, but allow volunteers to be close enough to share encouragement and humor.
Go to the Dunwoody Nature Center website to sign up and complete a volunteer waiver. Bring your water, gloves and plan to enjoy fellowship with your club members!
Malachi's Storehouse has three needs that we could help to address:
We need to know if you are interested in being part of - and perhaps coordinating volunteers for the Tuesday and Wednesday acctivities. If you are, please contact Kobelah Svensen Bennah, the Club's Community Service Director.
We have booked Dunwoody Tavern for our next Thirsty Thursday gathering. Join us next Thursday, November 19, from 5 to 7 PM on their patio. And bring a friend who might be interested in Rotary!
Note: This will take the place of a Friday meeting on November 20. We won't meet at the Dunwoody Country Club again until Friday, December 4.
Everyone is being encouraged to shop and mail early for Christmas this year. We'd like to encourage early shopping too - as we get ready to support the Marines and their annual Toys for Tots campaign.
When we gather for our Holiday luncheon on Friday, December 11, we'll be collecting bikes, toys and games to help make this holiday season great for needy local youth! Contact Jim Glass if you have any questions.
