From my earliest days, I always wanted to make a difference. Rotary allows me to have fun while making a difference and doing good.

I am a North Carolina TARHEEL. I was born, lived and went to school in Durham, graduated from UNC Chapel HILL with a BS in medical technology/clinical laboratory science. I attended grad school when my oldest child was looking at colleges. I received a master’s in education and PhD in Health Promotion and Behavior from the Univ. of GA while I was working at the Centers for Disease Control. [more]

Thanks for Your Service
Bounds Garden Expeditionary Force Strikes Again!

A lean and mean (in their minds) expeditionary force took control of the Gardens (33° 56’ 37” N 84° 19’ 55” W) at 0900 Saturday. An advanced squad composed of Fred Bounds and former Dunwoody Rotarian Warren Turner were on site at 0800 and after assessing the situation, retired to Panera‘s for sweet rolls and coffee. The third team member, Rick Otness, joined Bounds and Turner at 0900. Working with lightning speed, they quickly pacified the garden of leggy branches, impudent weeds and perimeter detritus.

The operation was over almost before it had begun. The garden was transferred back to civilian control at approximately 0925.

For new Dunwoody Rotarians, Bounds Gardens, previously named Monroe Park, is the traffic island across Chamblee Dunwoody Road from the Dunwoody library. Although it may seem so, no special operations expertise is necessary to participate in these periodic missions.

Want to join this expeditionary force? Watch for announcements of their next foray here and at Friday meetings. Or call Ranger Fred!
