Dunwoody Rides to Capitol; Arts Festival Needs Volunteers

Want to spend this coming Tuesday morning with the Mayor and a few of city council's finest?  Then grab your bike and helmet and head over to Fresh Market at 9:30.  Dunwoody is taking part in the Georgia Rides to the Capitol event on March 22.  For more information, click on the link.  A big thanks to our resident cycling expert Joe Seconder for getting the city involved.  Oh, did I mention their would be a police escort, and that Governor Deal would be waiting on the capitol steps for the cyclists arrival?

Dunwoody Arts Festival Needs Volunteers

Plans for Dunwoody Art Festival 2011 are in full swing. The Festival will be Mother's Day weekend, May 7 & 8. This year the Festival is hosting 180 local, regional and national artisans.

Looking toward this year's Festival, we can't help but remember the success of last year's event. The volunteers were certainly one of the big reasons that Dunwoody Art Festival was just named "Best New Event" by the Southeast Festivals and Events Association. The Mother's Day show picked up the gold medal among festivals from Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. We truly feel we won this prestigious honor because of all of our wonderful volunteers who helped present this colorful and whimsical show to the Dunwoody community. Without your support and generosity, the Festival would not have reached this level of success. We share this award with you!

Over 350 volunteers are needed to produce this fun and exciting event that Dunwoody friends and neighbors can call their own. As a thank-you to those who volunteer, we're having a weekly drawing for a $25 gift certificate from some of our local restaurants. Three lucky volunteers will each win one of these treats every week. To win, you must be signed up to volunteer:
  • There is no limit on the number of times you can win.
  • The more positions you sign up for, the more chances you have to win.
  • The earlier you sign up, the greater the chances you have of winning.
  • Winners will be drawn each Wednesday through May 4 and will be announced weekly.
  • Winners may pick up their gift certificates during the Festival at the Volunteer Check-in tent
