It's Thirsty Thursday time and this month we plan to gather at Dunwoody Tavern - from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Join us for food, fun and fellowship! It's a great opportunity to spend some extra time with your Rotary friends. The Tavern is located at 5488 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody.

GRSP Weekend Update
Don't Let the Opportunity to Welcome the World Pass You By

On February 10, we're expecting the 39 students of the GRSP Class of 2022-23 to join us for a weekend filled with fun, fellowship and learning. This weekend has become a Dunwoody tradition - offering opportunities to meet students from different parts of the world and spend time having fun with fellow Rotarians. It started about 20 years ago under the leadership of Fred and Kathy Brandt, and continued with leaders like Lorri Christopher, Harvey Rosensweig, Mike Parks, Scott Jennings, Louise and Ron Barden, and now Jackie Cuthbert. For most of those years, almost every club member playing some part in the weekend activities. The students have consistently rated our weekend at the top of their list!

There are many opportunities for you to be involved this year:

  • as a host family - providing transportation to and from our venue and "bed and breakfast" for one or two GRSP students ... from Friday night pick-up to Sunday morning drop-off
  • as part of our Rise Against Hunger Service project on Friday night, where we will pack 10,000 meals to be distributed to people in need around the world. We need 5-6 people to help set-up Friday afternoon, work through the two-hour event, and help with clean-up after
  • as part of the "food team" - helping keep snacks replenished from Friday afternoon through Sunday morning (in shifts as you have time) and setting up/putting away lunch on Saturday
  • as part of the set-up or clean-up team - starting early Friday afternoon, ending between 1:30 and 2 pm on Sunday).

Contact Jackie Cuthbert directly to sign up to help - at 770-597-1183 or cuthbert@mindspring.com

Golf Tournament Update
We Need Your Help!

With your help, our May 15, 2023 FORE the Memories Golf Tournament can become a major fundraiser - benefiting the Alzheimer's Association and the Rotary Club of Dunwoody Charitable Fund. How can you help? Right now, as we tee up this year's tournament, you can help identify local businesses and individuals who might want to be Tournament Sponsors - because it's good exposure for their business and/or because they want to help in the work we do in the community.

With the help of the Alzheimer's Association, we have created a great sponsor package you can share with everyone who might be interested in becoming a tournament sponsor.  To make that easy, we've added the document to our Resource library - you can click on 2023 Fore the Memories Golf Tournament Sponsor Package to take a look, download to share with friends or businesses, and even take a look at what you might like to do to sponsor this major fund-raising event. 

You can also direct people to our website: 2023 Event - FORE! The Memories
