VMCI Workday
Our Spring Work Day was rained out on March 23 and will be rescheduled for April 20. However, before the rains closed in, Steve Pfister (Grounds Chair) coordinated distribution of pine straw throughout the property as well as fresh mulch for the playground. It looks great! Thanks in advance for helping to keep VMCI one of the most beautiful clubs in Dunwoody!




The ROMEOS had another spirited turnout at our March meeting which featured Nancy Jester, our former District 1 Representative on theDekalbCounty Board Of Education as our guestspeaker. We were blessed to get "the rest of the story" as it were reference the current problems, needs, and solutions involving the Board. Mrs. Jester left us with no doubt that she will continue to focus and advocate on behalf of allDekalbstudents and taxpayers. A great meeting.


OurAPRILbreakfast meeting will be Monday, April 8 at the Hickory House. We are pleased to advise that Mr. Michael Starling - Economic Development Director for the City ofDunwoodywill be ourguestspeaker.

4th of July VeteransBows
Honor Our Veterans


The time is approaching for you to honor family members who have served or are now serving in the military. This has been a Village Mill tradition for many years.Bows should be displayed on mailboxes fromJune 28ththrough July 5th.


Take a moment and reflect on who you would like to honor if you yourself have not served. A grandfather who served in World War II? An uncle who was drafted after graduation from high school? A great aunt who served as a nurse in Korea? If you wish to honor more than one person, two bows will fit on most mailboxes.


The Veterans Bows are $5 and color coded by branch of service: Green for Army, red for Marine Corps, dark blue for Navy or Coast Guard and light blue for Air Force. All bows contain yellow ribbon, the international color for peace.


There will be a booth set up to sell Veterans Bows at the Strawberry Festival on June 1stfrom 10am-1pm. You can also contact Julian Black at770-396-5997to order your bows early.


Village Mill Military Bow History:Our long time neighbor,Bob Keesee, started and managed this program for a number of years. Bob passed away in 2011 andJulian Blackaccepted the honor to continue this tradition. Our neighbor,Susan West, has been the expert Veterans Bow maker for a number of years. Thank you Susan for the nice work.
