Our October meeting was very well attended at our new venue J. Christopher's. We were treated to a very insightful presentation and dialogue with Nancy Jester, Dunwoody's own candidate for the vacant District 1 Seat on the Dekalb County Commission, in the very important and hotly contested upcoming election. We thank Nancy for sharing her ideas and plans to represent us if elected.

Our Monday NOVEMBER 10 meeting will be very special in that it is the Birthday of The Marine Corps and the day before Veteran's Day. We plan to recognize the many ROMEO Veterans in appreciation for their service.
THE ROMEOS will be honoring Sgt. Mike Carlson, Dunwoody Police Department, for his service and sacrifice in his just completed 1 year deployment in Afghanistan with his National Guard Unit protecting and insuring our many precious and priceless freedoms we enjoy day in and day out. This should be an incredible meeting. Please plan to attend!


Please note a change in date!
Juliets will meet at AAC on November 15th, 2014 at 12:00 noon.
Please invite your friends and have them bring a check made out to

Thank you Village Mill

To my dear neighbors,

I wish to send my deepest thank you. I cherish and have found comfort in the love and kindness you all have shown my family and myself. Never in the 44 years that I have called Village Mill my home did I realize that I would get so much comfort and support from my friends and neighbors. Thank you again,

Jean Kester
