Year in Review the "City of Dunwoody"

A year ago the City of Dunwoody only officially existed in the plans of those who were working towards their final objective of creating a City. Though much work was done to get us to that point last January, several difficult hurdles needed to be overcome. With the help of Fran Millar, Dan Weber and hundreds of volunteers, we are now celebrating this holiday season officially in the City of Dunwoody.

From my family to yours, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or for you Seinfeld fans, Happy Festivus.
