DeKalb's Lee May comes to Dunwoody and a bunch of other Dunwoody tidbits.

I enjoyed a little time away.

I stepped away from computers and work responsibilities to play in the sand in Orange Beach, AL with my family for a bit & I hope your spring break was as refreshing and joyous as mine.  Where did you go?

Sunday evening (April 12 @ 7:30 pm) I will be attending the monthly Dunwoody Homeowners Association Meeting where Interim DeKalb CEO Lee May will be in attendance giving us an update (I will be listening attentively) and there will be updates on the Dunwoody Village Parkway Condos and the Georgia Power Tree Cutting Program.  Trees Atlanta and the Stage Door Players will also be visiting to raise a few issues.  DeKalb Cultural Arts Center (Room 4) 5339 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road

I have attended the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) in the past at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta and the ceremony is quite moving.  This year the ceremony is Sunday April 12, 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

The intersection of Spalding Drive and Mount Vernon Road will close for road construction starting Monday, April 13, according to the city of Sandy Springs. Please use Dunwoody Club as a Detour.

Monday night is a Dunwoody City Council Meeting - I am excited about approving the next segment of the Brook Run Trail as well as installing another park.

Lemonade Days starts Wednesday April 15th and runs through the weekend.  I will probably be there every day of the event but if you have children who want to ride the rides; may I suggest that Wednesday & Thursday will be the easiest and most economical option if you can swing it.   Lines are short or non-existent compared to Fri / Sat / Sun.  Here is the $5 off coupon - in fact three

Sunday Conversation with Debbie Fuse, the Executive Director of the Dunwoody Preservation Trust

Dunwoody Food Truck Thursdays are back to Brook Run Park! King of Pops & The Blaxican are rated as Atlanta's best and they are regular visitors to Dunwoody.

Saturday April 18 - Paint Recycling Event at Dunwoody Nature Center.

MARTA’s efforts to extend access to transit to the Georgia 400 Corridor will move one step closer to reality - see plans - next meeting April 19.

Have you even been in the Brook Run Greenhouse or Barn?  The Dunwoody Community Garden and Orchard (DCGO) and the Dunwoody Fine Art Association (DFAA) will be selling plants and exhibiting Art from local artists at Brook Run Park at 4770 North Peachtree Road in Dunwoody, GA 30338 from Monday, April 20 thru the 26th at the Greenhouse complex, which is across from the skateboard facility. The hours will be from 9:00 AM to 5:00PM. The public is invited and there is no fee.

Tuesday Night Kids Swim Season is soon upon us and Rick Callahan is prognosticating once again as to who is going to beat whom.  The full schedule is here.   If you do not belong to a local swim tennis association but have a child who would like to swim on a swim team, please reach out to Dunwoody North as we welcome everybody!  If you live in the area and want to join what I consider the best swim tennis club in Dunwoody where my bride is the social director and I can be found playing water volleyball on weekends; please check us out.

Kudos to Dunwoody Crime Analyst Amanda Head - the behind the scenes numbers cruncher works to keep us all safe.   I bet many readers could guess where this story happened?

Things that make you go "Hmmm" - Chamber of Commerce, George Chidi predicts Dark Days & much Speculation,

I received an email from Debbie Fuse asking that a correction be made to the story in the AJC.

.....that fewer than 30 years ago, Ashford Dunwoody Road was still a dirt road, that there were still many farms and nothing that you see now existed.

That it should have been ............ less than 50 years ago not 30 ?
