Dunwoody Solar Town Hall, Tuesday 7 pm at Dunwoody United Methodist Church to discuss Solarize Dunwoody - Home Installation.

Solar Town Hall

Tuesday, June 27, 7pm

Dunwoody United Methodist Church, 
1548 Mt. Vernon Road, Dunwoody

Interested in going solar? Want to save money and have the support of experts in installing the right system for you? Working together, we can make Dunwoody a leader in solar energy. Come to learn how you can help shape this movement and be a part of Solarize Dunwoody (@SunwoodyGA).

Solarize Dunwoody is a community based, PV bulk purchasing program that allows homeowners, businesses, and non-profits to save on the cost of solar together---the more that participate, the greater the savings!

This is a community input meeting where the coalition explains how the program works and asks attendees for input to shape the RFP to choose the vendor. Each attendee is given three stickers and is asked to place each one on a poster representing his/her top three priorities for the program. A friend attended the Solar Town Hall in Decatur and her top three priorities/program attributes were (1) overall price, (2) inverter warranty, and (3) community project. Other options might include warranty on solar panels, panels made in US, local workforce, etc.

Principals and parents from the eight schools that make up the Dunwoody Cluster are coming together for the first time to support education in a unique way. They’re organizing an inaugural community golf tournament called “All Fore One” on Monday, October 2, 2017.

"The golf tournament was a small idea that grew as the feeder principals talked about the desire to create a sense of community- where neighbors get to know neighbors, where one school supports another, where we realize that we are truly ONE," said Dunwoody Elementary School Principal, Jennifer Sanders.

The All Fore One committee is comprised of parent volunteers from Dunwoody High School, Peachtree Charter Middle School, Austin Elementary, Chestnut Elementary, Dunwoody Elementary, Hightower Elementary, Kingsley Elementary, and Vanderlyn Elementary.

For the first year, the funds raised will benefit capital improvements and educational enrichment at Dunwoody High School.  Looking forward, the tournament will raise money for Peachtree Charter Middle School as well.  The high school and middle school will benefit from the tournament in alternating years based on need.

Co-chairs Julia LeDoyen and Lauren Middlebrooks said it is a thrill to collaborate on this effort.
"The support that All Fore One is getting from families with young children is astounding," they said in a statement.  "Seeing elementary school parents and principals working together for the future is an indicator of the commitment Dunwoody residents have to maintaining strong schools for many years to come.  We will all benefit from that.”

This year’s proceeds will be directed to the “Game On Campaign” to assist with their efforts to enhance the high school athletic facilities.

The event will be held at Dunwoody Country Club, located at 1600 Dunwoody Club Drive.  Registration will begin at 8:30 am with a shotgun start at 10:00 am.  It will include a box lunch, award ceremony, and raffle.

“All Fore One” is seeking early sponsors to be featured on a banner in the Dunwoody 4th of July Parade, the largest of its kind in Georgia.

Dunwoody Police Officer Jason Lewis requests support for charity, promises single fit @DunwoodyPolice to mingle with after workout. @UMDF

Book your ride -

I'm a fan of Officer Jason Lewis and would bend over backward to help him and his wife Gwen (who is also in Law Enforcement) to support thier fund raising efforts.   I personally enjoy Cyclebar and am expecting a great ride with socializing afterward therefore I'm guessing a few of Dunwoody's finest may be in attendance?  As far as promises, ladies I can't promise exactly who will be there except I know at least one married, very sweaty, city councilman will be probably be riding bike 42.    If you've never tried Cyclebar, this would be a great introduction and 100% of the funds would go to support UMDF.   Thanks!   John

Councilman Heneghan,

My wife, Gwen, has organized a ride at CycleBar-Dunwoody on June 24 benefiting the United Mitochonrial Disease Foundation. A $25 donation is requested for the 50 min ride and 100% goes to the UMDF.

Our daughter, Anna, suffers from this disease and you can learn more at We are lucky and blessed that she is now 13 years old.

We would greatly appreciate it if you would post this on your blog. I have attached the flyer and picture of Anna. We give you permission to post her picture, if you feel its appropriate. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you,

Jason Lewis
Officer, Dunwoody PD

I'm booked for bike #42 who's going to join me?
