ROTARY CLUB OF
|Immediate PP||Cathie Brumfield|
This week, we welcome Michael Wilensky, State Representative from District 79. You may join us in person at Le Meridien Atlanta Perimeter or on Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86202979419
Mike Wilensky was born and raised in the Sandy Springs/Dunwoody area. A product of our public school system, he graduated from North Springs High School, where he played basketball and ran cross-country. He is the husband to a beautiful wife of almost ten years and they have two wonderful daughters. Mike not only lives in Dunwoody, but he is also a Dunwoody small business owner of a law practice located near Perimeter Mall.
Job very well done lady and gentlemen! Fantastic team effort. We had tight schedules but everyone's presence counted.
Bob did a great job reconnoitering the location; everyone found it. Jennie did a great job bringing loveliness to a group of grizzled men. Griff brought the much needed trailer. Ken, Jim, and Jeff drove much needed trucks and SUVs. Rick Otness did a great job coordinating and thinking ahead. Rick Woods did a great job rocking facial hair. Freddy and Father Game did a wonderful job especially coordinating the final delivery.
President Ardy did a great job keeping spirits up and happy. Wonderful morning. And we got 4,800 pounds of Grade-A foodstuffs to Malachi's for distribution "from farms to families." Epic day. Of all the area clubs participating, Dunwoody's presence and team-spirit shinned the brightest. It was humbling to be a part of the team.
Thanks to all,
Community Services Director
Editor's Note: For the overall project, there were 20 Rotarians and six volunteers from the local organizations getting food. Together they loaded 1,100 20 lb.+ boxes from a semi into about ten vehicles (large & small trucks, SUVs and trailers) that went to food pantries and families in Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Roswell, Acworth, and Cumming. That's 70 Rotarian volunteer hours in the morning and more later in the day. Awesome work - thanks Kobelah for your persistence in organizing this event!
Our Year-End Celebration - featuring fellowship, awards, food and libations - will take place at the Dunwoody Country Club on Thursday, June 17 at 6:00 PM. Come to celebrate all that we've accomplished this year under President Ardy Bastien's leadership and to welcome President-Elect Carter Stout and his team for what promises to be a fun-filled new year of doing good in the community.
The event will include a buffet and beverages - watch for more details as the date gets closer.
Please let Past President Rick Woods know if you are coming and whether you are bringing a guest - you can write to him at email@example.com.
It's great to be back doing things that we love! Please mark your calendar for two club favorites:
Watch for more information on both these events in the coming weeks!
Wow - driving by Bounds Garden on the way to Brook Run last Saturday - the hottest day of the year in the afternoon sun, I noticed someone working in Bounds Garden. On my return trip, the worker - none other than Ranger Fred Bounds - was still there. With the temperature nearing 90 degrees, I went directly home to pick up some cold beverages for Fred. He was still there - busily focused on planting wildflower seedlings.
Fred gave me a garden update and tour of recent plantings. Dunwoody Rotarians should be proud of the amazing garden that we have created in this space that we have maintained for more than 20 years.
Kudos to "Ranger" Fred for leading the way as our very own Master Gardener.
