Village Mill Signs Village Mill Swim & Tennis

Thank you to Larry and Ann Weber and Lynne Perry for working so hard to make our entrances welcoming when we come home! They have spent many hours planting, pulling weeds and painting our signs along with securing the signs so that they do not collapse.

Our Village Mill signs are over thirty years old, and it is becoming more and more apparent that they need to be replaced due to the wood being so weathered and rotten. We are in the process of obtaining quotes from different sources to see what new signage is going to cost Village Mill. We will be giving you updates and will probably be having fundraisers to raise the money needed to replace our signs. Donations are always welcome! Stay tuned for more information concerning our signs.


At our February breakfast, the ROMEOS were treated to an eye opening and information packed presentation on the finer points of Long Term Care and Medicare Supplements by Mr. Tom Faber, Director, Long Term Care Planning Center of Georgia thanks to Rick McCully's invitation. Our breakfast was again well attended and everyone left very much enriched. Thanks again Rick and Mr. Faber.

Our MARCH breakfast meeting will be Monday, (always 2nd Monday), March 10th at the Hickory House. Our speaker will be Mr. Jim Riticher, our sitting newly elected District 2 Dunwoody City Council representative. We look forward to a "State Of The District" message and a lively Q & A session as well as his vision for our great City. We will also get a first hand update on the "hot topics" of the day concerning our City.

Please plan to attend what promises to be a great meeting.

For additional ROMEO information, please contact John Pleck, Chairman. Phone 770-396-6283

Sympathy to...
Julie, Doug, Braedon, and Sam Cole on the death of Julie's mother.

Thank you...

The family of Claydene Dunlap is deeply grateful for all the love, prayers, food, flowers, cards and support provided by the good folks of Village Mill during her illness. Even though we don't live within the official boundaries of the organization, Claydene was an active participant in the Club for nearly 40 years. Village Mill is a special place with special people. Thank you.
