The newest Drew Valley Voice is available. Right-click to save the PDF to your hard drive. The Drew Valley Voice will also be available on Nextdoor Drew Valley, so be sure to join that excellent service to find out neighborhood information from the people who live here.

We are planning to reduce the number of newsletters we are printing after this issue. If you would like to have it delivered to your house, you will need to let us know. There are many reasons to reduce the print and delivery of the Drew Valley Voice moving forward. We have been encouraged by our county commissioner, city and local reps to go “green” and reduce reliance on paper. In addition, the Voice is by far the biggest expense for our neighborhood with many issues costing over $400 to print alone. We need to continue to evolve as a neighborhood becoming more environmentally and fiscally responsible and we hope you embrace this mission. You will continue to receive the Voice via NextDoor as well as via email if you would like to send us your email address to Newsletter@drewvalley.net. We will also print some copies. And of course, if you truly need a printed copy of the Voice delivered to you, we will make sure that happens and you can email Newsletter@drewvalley.net or by mail at by mail to P.O. Box 190113, Atlanta, GA 31119.

If you know of a neighbor who is not using the internet, please let us know. We do not want anyone to miss out our neighborhood newsletter!

Don’t forget the Drew Valley Civic Association meeting will be held on Thursday, April 17, at 7:00 p.m. at the Clairmont Baptist Church on 354 Clairmont Road.

Drew Valley Newsletter

Laura RossHi, I am Laura Ross and am taking over Newsletter duties for Drew Valley Civic Association. I’ve been the website admin for about a year now and am a professional graphic designer who has lived in the neighborhood since 1992. I have a husband named Dwight Lyman, and two daughters — one who lives in Melbourne, Australia and the other who goes to college at Georgia State. We also have a Labrador-pitbull mix named Copernicus and three cats named Casper Wyoming, Audubon, and Sparrow.

Expect a brand new design soon, and also for the most part, after the new issue comes out, for the most part our newsletter will be delivered electronically so that we will cut back on paper trash flying about in the neighborhood and to save trees. If you still want a newsletter delivered to you, just let us know. We will also have printed copies in various drop points in the neighborhood.

Soon, I will set up a subscription page so that you can subscribe to the new newsletter.

I’m really excited to be taking over newsletter duties! Let me know if you have any suggestions or concerns.

First Responder Meet and Greet

Barbeque

This Saturday (8/24) from 5pm to 7 pm, Haven and Valenza restaurants, together with Ronnie and Debbie Mayer, will sponsor a bar-b-que for DeKalb Fire and Brookhaven Police at Station 2 on Dresden Drive.

This event is open to the public and neighbors are encouraged to come by to enjoy a great burger or a hot dog and scrumptious picnic sides and an opportunity to meet our local first responders in a casual atmosphere at their ‘house’.

We look forward to seeing you at DeKalb Fire Station 2 on Saturday evening!
