2013 VMCI Summer Friday Night Cookouts:

Julie Cole has coordinated these great Friday gatherings at the pool for the past 2 summers. She wants to take a break this year and is looking for 1-3 people to take over the organizing. A sign-up genius is already set up to use each week.

Responsibilities would include:
Finding Cooks for Friday Nights prior to June 1st
Sending out a weekly sign-up genius email for RSVP's
Planning possible catered events for weekends with no cooks
Collecting money from cooks
Making sure supplies are on hand

This can be split amongst 1-3 people (preferably 3) so that you each are only responsible for 1 month. If you regularly attend these, please consider helping out. It's been a great new tradition at Village Mill and many of us would like to see it continue.

Please contact Julie Cole ( or 770-546-8880) if you would like to help with the Friday Night Cookouts for the Summer of 2013.


THE ROMEOS enjoyed a fabulous Annual Christmas Dinner on December 9th according to the 44 attendees. Our thanks to Fred Augello and The Ravinia Staff for arranging a great menu and Holiday decor and service that made this event one to remember. Adding to the spirit of the season, THE ROMEOS and neighbor friends of THE ROMEOS filled Sgt. Rusty Furman's patrol car with the outpouring of gifts collected as part of the "Christmas For Kids" annual program sponsored by the Dunwoody Police Department. Rick McCully did a super job coordinating this support.

Based on the positive feedback received, we have booked The Ravinia for our 2013 Annual Christmas Dinner which will be on Sunday, December 1, 2013.

Our January breakfast meeting will be Monday January 14th at The Hickory House. We are very pleased that Mr. Michael Smith, Director of Public Works, for the City of Dunwoody will be our speaker. He will address the following HOT issues: 1) Vermack/Womack intersection; 2) Dunwoody Village Parkway project; 3) North Peachtree/Peeler Road intersection; and 4) Brook Run project. Our input is encouraged and welcome. We look forward to a great turnout based on the importance and impact of these issues.

New Combination Lock on Women's Restroom

VMCI has removed the padlock from the women's restroom door and replaced it with a 4-digit, push-button combination lock. The code is the last four (4) digits of our zip code - "0338". This should be easy for members and visiting tennis teams to remember. Additionally, our zip code is posted in big numbers on the front wall of the pool house (above and to the right of the bathroom door) to help visiting tennis teams from outside of Dunwoody. Please make note of the new door code and remember to use discretion when sharing this code with non-members and children.

To use the new lock, you simply press the four buttons in the proper order and door will unlock, allowing you to turn the handle and pull the door open. The door will automatically relock after 30 seconds or you can manually relock it from the outside by pressing the "Lock" button. As a safety feature, the door will always open from the inside of the bathroom when the handle is turned.
