Dunwoody Update: Bike to Lunch, City Council Meetings, Memorial Day Ceremony, Award, Kids to Park Day, Food Truck Thursday, Dunwoody Art Festival, Ask the FCC

1. Bike to Lunch …. Tomorrow, May 8, we will have our annual “Bike to Lunch” day. We will meet at city hall at 12:15 PM and leave city hall at 12:30 PM sharp. You can ride your bike to city hall or haul to city hall and ride it from there. We will bike to Tin Lizzy’s for lunch via the new trail bridge over Nancy Creek. It will be an easy pace ride so don’r worry about being left behind. Let’s get a whole herd of bikers.

2, May City Council Meetings … Since the 4th Monday of May falls during the Memorial Day Holiday our CC meetings in May are on the 1st and 3rd Monday’s of May. Thus the next meeting will be on May 20 at 6 PM. Prior to this meeting there will be a Facility Authority (FA) meeting starting at 5 PM to discuss/grant a long term lease to the Spruill Center of the Arts. This is the same thing we granted the DNC over a year ago. The FA granting a long term lease with the city enhances the non-profit’s ability to raise funds from donors.

3. June City Council Meeting … There will only be one city council in June as several council members will be attending the annual Georgia Municipal Assoc. convention Jun 21 - 24.

4. Memorial Day Ceremony … This annual Dunwoody Memorial Day Ceremony will take place on May 27 at 10 AM in Brook Run Park at the Veterans Memorial. Come honor those that honored us with their supreme sacrifice of their live. I would like to see huge turnout to honor those that we all owe so much.

5. Award … I was recently given the “Bridge Builder” award from the DC CEO Michael Thurmond. I want each of you to know that part of that award belongs to you!

6. Dunwoody Kids to Park Day … The event will take place May 18 starting at 5 PM at Brook Run Park. All kinds of great fun ending with a movie at dusk .. bring the “troops” for family fun.

7. Food Truck Thursday …. Thanks to all that did all the work … Bill Grossman, Brent Walker, Gabe Epps, Rachel Walden, Jennifer Boettcher and Kathy Florence. Also, thanks to all who came and made it a huge fun filled community spirit event.

8. Dunwoody Art Festival … This popular event will be this Saturday, May 11 from 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM. The event takes place on the Dunwoody Village Parkway.

9. Ask the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) … This event will take place this Thursday at 6 PM at our city hall.
