Birth of a New Dunwoody Tradition?

The Dunwoody Preservation Trust washed the Farmhouse in blue in honor of Autism Awareness Month.

Why should the Empire State Building have all the fun?  Like Light Up Dunwoody, and the Fourth of July parade, our City's icon can be used to celebrate all kinds of events and commemorations that bring our diverse community together.

Is there any chance the DPT can make the Farmhouse lighting a regular event?  Red, white, and blue for July 4 and other national holidays?  Yellow for Lemonade Days?  (Only half kidding....)  With some forethought and planning the Farmhouse, a symbol of Dunwoody's past, could be used to make relevant statements about Dunwoody today.

Great idea, DPT!

While chatting with Tom McGurk on Facebook, he reminded me that lighting up the house exterior allows DPT and any potential sponsors to make a statement without having to toe the line with the sign ordinance and other overlay district restrictions. Win-win all around!
