Green Opportunity = Greenhouse for DNC. Send your two-liter empty bottles in a new direction for upcycling into a greenhouse for the Dunwoody Nature Center. Eagle Scout canditate Reilly Friedman is creating a greenhouse as part of his Eagle certificate and needs your help.

And yes, indeed, the walls of the greenhouse will be made from the empty bottles.

Just drop them by the DNC for his project when you’re out.

Rescue Dogs star in show; percentage of proceeds benefit their friends. The Marcus Jewish Community Center’s Company J closes out its production of “Legally Blonde” on Sunday with shows through the weekend.

Along with Elle Woods, ex-boyfriend Warner, her sorority sisters and manicurist, the show features rescue dogs. Jake, as Bruiser, is a two-year-old chihuahua/dachshund/terrior mix, rescued from a kill shelter in 2011.

Playing Rufus, Epic is a three-year-old border collie that is a therapy dog for children who have been abused or neglected.

A portion of each ticket sale will benefit the Angels Among Us pet rescue, a 501(c)3 volunteer-based organization dedicated to rescuing dogs and cats from high kill shelters in north Georgia. The organization has rescued more than 4,000 animals.

Tickets are $10 to $20 with discounts for students, seniors, groups and MJCCA members. Call 678-812-4002 or visit for details.

Citizens Taking a Stand. If you’re getting your paper a day early, on Tuesday, there is time to join the Dunwoody Police Department for the 30th annual National Night Out.

Now in its fifth year, National Night Out now involves more than 37 million people and 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.

The event, a year-long community building campaign, is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

This year, Target will be handing out Frisbees, raffling off $200 in gift cards and serving food outside in the parking lot at 6 p.m. The Dunwoody Police will also have special equipment on display including patrol car, Segway and SWAT vehicle.

The Society of Former FBI Agents, in partnership with the Dunwoody Police Department, is participating in the National Child Identification Program this year and will distribute child I.D. kits at the police department’s booth. The kits are free and will allow parents to take and retain their child’s fingerprints and a DNA sample, as well as record detailed identifying information. This is suitable for children ages 4 and up.
