Taylor Wesley

Related to Taylor's story, I invite you to attend an evening of insightful discussion and support on raising awareness of mental health conditions and challenges our teenagers face. Tonight at 6 pm Chamblee Charter High School will be hosting a free mental health awareness session where everyone can learn how we can identify those challenges that teenagers face and support our young people to maintain positive emotional well-being and self-image. This event is sponsored by The Lee Thompson Young Foundation, in collaboration with Chamblee Charter High School. Admission is free.

43rd annual Dunwoody Home Tour is today from 9:30 to 3 pm.

Food Truck Thursday is hosted by your new Dunwoody City Councilwoman, Ms. Pam Tallmadge and she has ordered up some beautiful weather, great food and a talented singer who use to be a famous reality tv star.

Friday night I will be attending one of the most anticipated high school football games of the year when the Marist War Eagles will be visiting the St. Pius Golden Lions.  Kickoff is at 7:30 but get there early as parking and seating is limited.

Atlanta Parent Magazine offices are located just a stones throw from the City just inside 285 and I have used them and their website numerous times in the past when looking for ideas of things to do with my children.   This Saturday Oct 10th they are hosting their annual Atlanta Parents Family Festival on the campus of Mercer and I highly recommend it for great information and cheap children's activities for the day.  PS:  If your children have four legs, please don't feel left out as your parent expo is also coming up on November 14th.

Talking of four legged friends, on Saturday Oct 10th the is the Run Your Happy Tails Off Run and Festival at Brook Run Park.

I have been researching information for an upcoming City of Dunwoody forum for Dunwoody High School Students and discovered that our neighboring city has a Youth Leadership Sandy Springs program. We need to do something like this!

Here is the sample Dunwoody Ballot for November 3rd and please let me help guide you on one item, please vote yes to approve the referendum for HB 597 which states "Shall the Act be approved which revises the Board of Ethics for DeKalb County?"

I have known about our own Chief Billy Grogan publishing a book on social media and policing for awhile but this morning I got a review from a neighbor, so may we see it on the New York Bestsellers list soon! Kudos Sir!

Is your family interested in riding in a huge well organized Saturday morning bike ride? Check out the DES Tour de Dunwoody on Sat October 17th.

Dunwoody Nature Center is climbing trees on Sat Oct 17th with ropes, if you are interested, check it out.

Sunday October 18th - Brook Run Park will be the site for the 3rd Annual Atlanta Kosher BBQ Festival.

If you like digging in the dirt, do I have something for you!  Help Trees Atlanta on October 24th to plant trees at Brook Run Park.

After planting trees, stick around Brook Run for the 1st Annual Bud-n-Burgers Festival which will crown Atlanta's Best Burger.  

All Saints Church is currently selling pumpkins at great prices and was just told that they will be hosting a Chastain style concert for the community on Sat Oct 24th with the Men in Blues wailing on their guitars. Tickets & tables are available from and I'm sure I will have more information as the date gets closer.
