Thank you toSusan West for the bows and candles and all of her years of much appreciated service and making sure our neighborhood is ready for the holidays every year.
A big thank you to everyone that volunteered their time to VMNA this year to support our neighborhood and make sure we had fun events planned.
As the new year begins, the term of the current board is ending. VMNA needs new board members for the 2015 year. All positions are available which includes President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary.


Please contact Terri Gouldman if you would like to hold a board position for 2015. All board members should live in the Village Mill neighborhood especially President and Vice-President. If you are currently holding a position for a committee and do not wish to lead the committee next year, you are responsible for finding your replacement.


Our neighborhood is awesome, and we need you to volunteer to keep our activities running! If you would like to be on a committee, please also email Terri There are many committees to choose from. The Village Mill Directory includes all committees.


If you haven't served as an officer, or it has been awhile since you last served, please consider volunteering your time. Please contact Terri if you have further questions. Thank you for considering.

Thank you from Ginger McLaughlin:
I'd like to express my appreciation for the heart warming cards and the beautiful gift.
I really enjoyed the time that I served on the Holiday Open House Committee - the fun of pulling it together, working with all the great people and seeing the ladies enjoy the party.
I always said it was my way of giving back to Village Mill. I'll miss it, but it's time for others to share in the fun.

Our annual joint ROMEO/JULIET Christmas Dinner was celebrated by 58 holiday spirited attendees December 7th at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia. It was an evening filled with great fellowship, fine food, and an overall fun time. We are already planning for 2015.

A highlight of the evening was the presentation of some 40 gifts to Sgt. Espinoza of our Dunwoody Police Department in support of the "Christmas For Kids" beautiful outreach sponsored by our great Dunwoody Police Department. Thanks to all for participating.

We are looking forward to having our District 2 City Councilman, Jim Riticher, join us again at our Monday, January 12th breakfast meeting at J. Christopher's. Jim will have appropriate representatives from the City Of Dunwoody with him to address our concerns and objections with respect to ANY future extension of Olde Village Run into the Heritage Of Dunwoody adjoining neighborhood development now well underway.
