Dunwoody's Glow plays at Jimmy's, Volunteers needed Saturday for t-shirt help, Roberts Rezoning, crosswalk on Mt. Vernon, Brook Run Stormwater, help fallen Vets.

Saturday morning volunteers wanted - St. Baldrick's Tee shirt processing, All Saints Catholic

We will process ( unpack, fold, roll and wrap) surplus 2018 St. Baldrick's Tee shirts.  The tees will be given to spectators during the Atlanta St. Patrick's Parade.  If you would like a set of Tees for a sports team or for your St. Baldrick's event, let me know.  Schedule times are approximate, please arrive when convenient.   Location All Saints Catholic Church 2443 Mount Vernon Rd, Dunwoody, GA 30338.  We will be in the gym in the lower level parking lot.

5328 Roberts Rezoning Plans - discussed and deferred at this weeks Planning Commission. I personally attended this meeting as I know there are lots of issues regarding water flow, historical stormwater & sewer easements, topography, a lack of fencing, and other issues.  Protection of existing neighbors from proposed community improvements seems to be a thread lately.

New Crosswalk on Mt. Vernon is in preliminary planning stage & Brook Run Playground will be resurfaced this summer.

Lots of discussion over Brook Run stream buffers and hydrology reports at the Dunwoody City Council meeting on Monday - guessing this item will be in the news for the next several months.  Here are a few important docs, 2013 hydrology report, the new preliminary hydrology report, and park deed that spells out minimum requirements. The park construction plans, stream buffer and tree loss reports will also be closely scrutinized during a City Council hearing at some meeting in the future.

Helping young men in the City of Dunwoody like Emerson Doolittle to be able to assist veterans is truly a privilege I can not pass up.  Please consider paying it forward with a small donation as he honors those who have sacrificed so much. Thanks  John
Hi, my name is Emerson and I live in Atlanta. I’ve been in Boy Scouts since 6th grade and it’s been my lifelong dream to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout, which is the highest award in scouting.

For my Eagle Project, I will lead a team of Boy Scouts to build 30 memorial flag cases for the families of veterans who can't afford them. I will present them to the families through the Atlanta Veteran's Administration Hospital.

The military burial flag honors a veteran and their surviving family. Both the deceased veteran and the family have made a sacrifice for their country, and the flag is a memorial to that sacrifice.

One of the most requested items at the VA is a flag case to display and honor a loved one’s flag. Many veterans’ families do not have the means to purchase one. For my Eagle Project, I will handcraft 30 cases out of beautiful oak wood as a way to say thank you.

Any donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated to allow me to purchase wood, glass and other supplies. Your gift of $25 buys supplies to build an entire flag case for a deserving family. 

Thank you for considering a donation. The veterans’ families and I appreciate your support.
