This Week's Speaker
Billy Grogan, Chief of Police - City of Dunwoody

Billy Grogan became the first Chief of Police for the new city of Dunwoody in December 2008.Previously, Chief Grogan served as Deputy Chief of Police for the Marietta Police Department where he was employed from 1981 until his retirement in 2008. Chief Grogan was promoted through the ranks of the Marietta Police Department and served in many challenging, yet rewarding positions. We are pleased to count Chief Grogan as a member of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody.

As a police professional, Chief Grogan is committed to the concept of Community Policing as a way to connect with the community in a meaningful way to combat crime and disorder and improve the quality of life for the visitors and citizens of Dunwoody. [more]

Supporting Each Other
Share Your Business/Family Story; Join Our Vocational Committee

As a new initiative to help members learn more about their fellow members, each week a member will have the opportunity to spend about 3 minutes immediately after Sunshine to share their professional and family lives. If you want to be added to the list please contact me - Carter Stout at cstout@stoutkaiser.com.

At the request of Cathie Brumfield, I am heading up a committee to focus on activities that help Dunwoody Rotarians help one another grow their business. If you're interested in being on the committee, please contact me at cstout@stoutkaiser.com .All are welcome. If you don't have time to be on a committee then feel free to send me your ideas and suggestions.

Rotary Youth Exchange Needs You!!

Daniella has arrived in South Korea for her Rotary Youth Exchange, thanks to all the hours invested by our RCD Rotary Youth Exchange committee and numerous others.

Our committee needs some additional members! Please take this opportunity to meet some amazing high school students who want to be a part of the Rotary Youth Exchange program. We especially could use help with recruiting outbound students for the 2020-21 school year – recruiting starts in August! All that is required is (1) a criminal background check; and (2) a short on-line training regarding interactions with Youth Exchange students. That’s it!! Other volunteer opportunities (i.e., meeting make-ups!) also are available. Please contact Deb Cameron with questions or to get involved in this great Rotary program: dsc630@gmail.com or 404.668.1259.
