"Your attitude colors every aspect of your life. It is like the mind's paintbrush"— author John Maxwell.

When tasked with selecting a Doraville Difference Maker for October, Council Member Yeoman reflected on the words from John Maxwell and could think of no one more fitting than Bonnie Grey Flynt Perry.

Bonnie Grey Flynt Perry moved to Doraville in 2007 and immediately started getting involved in the community. She was Secretary of the Northwoods Area Neighborhood Association for two years, before becoming president for six years. After which she was named the NANA President Emeritus. While president, Bonnie started the neighborhood watch program, worked tirelessly to get Northwoods its historical designation, assisted in efforts to design new entrance signs for the neighborhood, raised money for the sign toppers, and designed the historical designation plaque for McClave.

Bonnie's community involvement doesn't stop at Northwoods. She's the house to visit for Halloween, she's one of the official eleves when Santa comes to Doraville, and she was an instrumental member of the city's 150th-anniversary committee. Bonnie was meant to be the October Difference Maker but she was committed to teaching free cha-cha classes at the Doraville Art Center.
