The ROMEOS were very pleased to hear from Mary Louise Connor, Executive Director of Perimeter North Villages, Dunwoody at our very well attended June breakfast meeting. We got a very interesting briefing on the "Villages" concept which is national in scope, but new to our area. The mission of the "Villages" is to provide support in many forms to allow elderly couples and singles to stay in their homes independently and stay connected to the communities they have lived in for a long time. Thank you Bill Schuh for coordinating the meeting.

At our JULY 13 breakfast meeting again at J. Christopher's, Denny Shortal, our District 1 City Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem will again join us. Denny is running for Dunwoody Mayor in the November elections and we are anxious to hear his platform. We intend to share our concerns with the paving situation in an open discussion as it relates to Village Mill. This promises to be a great meeting.

VMCI Meeting

July VMCI Board Meeting is scheduled for Sunday July, 12th at 7:00 pm at the pool pavilion.
Village Mill Military Veterans Bows

2015 Strawberry Festival proved to be interesting and exciting. The Village Mill neighbors supported the program by ordering 10 bows plus we had one contribution.

Listed below are the bows that were purchased and those that were being honored:

Bill Koss: The US Air Force bow is to honor his uncle father's.

Bill Koss: The US Army bow is to honor his father-in-law, David Trisko.

Anne Weber: The US Army and the US Air Force bows are to honor her two brothers.

Jessica Epstein: The US Army bow is to honor her grandfather, Lester Weinberger, who fought in WWII.

Justin Greear: The US Air Force bow is to honor his grandfather, a pilot who flew B-29's in the Pacific. He is now 91 years old, in good health and lives in Raleigh, NC.

Robert McDowell: The US Navy bow is to honor his grandfather, a pilot in WWII and the two US Army bows are to honor his other two grandfathers.

Kelsie Deiter: The US Army bow is to honor her grandfather, a WWII vet who was stationed in Alaska, and her great grandfather, who was stationed in Germany during WWII before being captured by the Germans. His prison camp was abandoned by the Germans when the Russians and the US troops advanced. Before he passed away at the age of 95, he wrote a five page article giving a description of how he was captured, the route he took to the prison camp and his eventual rescue. Kelsie maintains a copy of the article detailing his experiences.

Dunwoody City Council Member Terry Nall made a monetary contribution to the military bow program.

I would like to thank the Village Mill Neighborhood Association for its strong support for the "Military Bow" program - Julian Black.
