For those of you who haven't met Charlie Augello, he is one of our amazing Dunwoody Rotarians, and also the owner of a fantastic Italian bakery/restaurant/grocery store in Dunwoody.  He's invited us to come by and check it out, and I've heard nothing but good things about their food (plus the people are pretty cool too :-P).  We'll be doing lunch (and I, at least, will also be doing dessert!) at the restaurant, and then heading over to Brook Run Park to work off some of that hearty fare.

If you'd like to carpool, please post in the comments below so we can get that organized.  I really hope to see you all there, it'll be a lot of fun (and delicious!) and it's always nice to support our local Rotarians, considering everything they do for us!

Thanks!

I will send out my number closer to the event

The Atlanta Science Festival is a week-long celebration of local science and technology, held March 21-28, 2015. Curious people of all ages will explore the science and technology in our region and see how science is connected to all parts of our lives in a variety of hands-on activities, facility tours, presentations, and performances throughout the metro Atlanta region. The Festival culminates in the free, family-friendly EXPLORATION EXPO - an interactive day of demos, hands-on activities, and stage shows at Centennial Olympic Park.

The 10:30 am to 2:30 pm shift will be the first group that sees the Expo in action. This shift will focus still a bit on the vendors but also on the general public too. There are numerous types of roles, which we'll find out more about as the event gets closer.
