The Atlanta WW II Round Table is making a major change beginning in January 2017 due to the closure of the current Petite Auberge Restaurant in the Toco Hills Shopping Center on N. Druid Hills Rd. in Atlanta, which has been our meeting venue for over 13 years. The Petite is closing effective December 31st, 2016, which has resulted in a decision to move our meeting venue to The Dunwoody United Methodist Church at 1548 Mount Vernon Road in Dunwoody, GA 30338.
This facility has the six (6) requirements the Round Table needs. AMPLE and FREE parking; A CONVENIENT LOCATION to the majority of our membership; The facility is SENIOR-FRIENDLY and HANDICAP-ACCESSIBLE + there is a ELEVATOR in the building to access the 2nd floor; AMPLE MEETING SPACE within the meeting room to accommodate 350-500 members and guests; FOOD QUALITY and service which is excellent + the MEAL COST to the members and guests can remain at $ 20.00 for individuals + we now can extend a price of $ 35.00 for couples; The AUDIO/VISUAL/SOUND EQUIPMENT is high-quality and up-to-date.
This sudden move created some chaos for both the Round Table and the Dunwoody UMC. The Round Table is blessed that the Church’s Facilities Manager and Events Coordinator, Debbie Collins, was able to quickly make adjustments to the Church’s meeting dates and social calendar to accommodate our Organization with just two (2) exceptions to our regular meeting schedule.
We will continue to be able to meet on the third-Thursday of each month for 8 of our 10 scheduled meetings with the following exceptions:
May 16th, 2017 (3rd Tuesday)
June 29th, 2017 (5th Thursday)
In addition, we will not have the 3rd Saturday available for our February 2017 Banquet, consequently the February Banquet will be on the 3rd Thursday in February (February 16th, 2017) and will be a combination Meeting/Banquet.
So in summary, there were only two (2) dates in which The Dunwoody United Methodist Church could not accommodate the Round Table for our 3rd Thursday monthly Meetings: May 16th, 2017 (3rd TUESDAY) and June 29th, 2017 (5th THURSDAY.)
Our Meeting Start-Time has been changed as follows: Social Half-Hour: 10:45 AM – 11:15 AM > BUFFET LINE OPENS AT 11:15 AM – MEETING START TIME 11:45 AM – 12:00 NOON for all meetings.
The February 2017 Banquet will be on Thursday, February 16th and will replace our regular Banquet formally held on the 3rd Saturday in February.
The following are the dates for all Round Table meetings in 2017 at The Dunwoody United Methodist Church:
January 19th (3rd Thursday)
February 16th (3rd Thursday) NOTE THAT THIS WILL BE OUR MEETING/BANQUET EVENT FOR FEBRUARY 2017
March 16th (3rd Thursday)
April 20th (3rd Thursday)
May 16th ( 3rd TUESDAY)
June 29th (5th THURSDAY)
