This Week's Speaker
Michael Starling, Director of Economic Development, City of Dunwoody

Join us in welcoming Michael Starling at this Friday's meeting ... in person at Le Meridien Atlanta Perimeter, 111 Perimeter Center West, Atlanta GA 30346, or via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86202979419.

Michael is the Director of Economic Development for the City of Dunwoody, Georgia.

Priorities for the City include retention of existing businesses, recruitment of new firms, and the redevelopment of existing commercial areas.

Honor Bill Mulkey with TRF Contributions

PDG Bill Mulkey was always quick to remind us of the value of each dollar contributed to The Rotary Foundation. He was passionate about the good we could do through the Rotary Foundation and encouraged us all to give what we could and get involved in all the programs the Foundation has to offer - from Group Study Exchange to Global Grants, Ambassadorial Scholars and more.

One of the ways we are honoring Bill Mulkey is through new contributions to TRF in Bill's name to bring him to the next level as a Major Donor. If you would like to contribute to the cash gift for Bill, make a tax deductible donation to the “Dunwoody Charitable Fund” (a 501c3). We will put all gifts together with a donation from our club and send it to The Rotary Foundation in his name. This will not count towards your individual Foundation giving, but instead be a tribute to the cause that Bill loved – The Rotary Foundation. To make that gift, please reach out to jstipick@att.net for mailing instructions.

We are also doing a tribute book for Bill's wife Beverly and his daughters. Find out how you can contribute ... [more]
