Here is the October 2014 edition of the Drew Valley Voice.  Just right click and save to download it.

Note that there is a very important interview with Brookhaven District 2 City Council candidates. It would do you well to read this before election day on November 4th! Thanks to Kay Spencer for pulling this together.

There are lots of upcoming events going on in October in our  neighborhood. On Sunday, October 5th at 1:00, there is a block party/pumpkin carving event at Briarwood Park.

On Halloween (Friday, October 31 at 5:30), we are having our annual “Boo” Valley Trick-or-Treating event on the 2300 block of Nesbitt. Dress up, bring the little ones, and food and adult and kid beverages to share!

Also, take note of our upcoming DVCA General Meeting. This is on Thursday, October 16 at 7:00 p.m. and will be held at Clairmont Baptist Church. This is an important meeting to attend, as we are electing our new Executive Committee, and also have lots to discuss.

We have reduced the number of issues being printed to save the environment and also money, starting with this issue, so you may have not noticed that you didn’t receive a printed issue. We are in the process of setting up and dusting off our new emailing system, and if we already have your email, you’ll be getting your newsletter that way. Of course, if you would still rather get your newsletter in print form, let us know either by email at or to our mailbox at P.O. Box 190113, Atlanta, GA 31119. You can also get your newsletter from NextDoor Drew Valley, where it is in the Documents section.

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!

The 6th Annual “Pumpkins in the Park”

13 10 DV Pumpkin Patch- use - 55-1
This will be the 6th Annual Pumpkin Patch/October Block Party, but it will be 2nd year held at Briarwood Park. Last year, approximately 100 neighbors supported the new venue by attending and Briarwood Way was lined with cars, last year. The energy was wonderful and the sense of community was palpable contributing to 22 new members joining the DVCA! Non-Drew Valley attendees who stopped by because of the fun atmosphere also gave donations to the DVCA for the event! The DVCA Executive Committee and Board supplied the food, manned the grills, and organized the entertainment.

This year, neighbors of all ages, come out to pick out your Halloween pumpkin, try your skills at pumpkin carving to win a prize, get a professional photo taken in the pumpkin patch for a $20 donation to the DVCA, and enjoy fun activities for the kids!

See you…

Sunday, October 5th 1pm-3pm

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 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 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.
