Mark your calendars - August 2013

I am involved in several events in the next few months and I want you all to have time to get them on your calendars. I'm volunteering in various ways to help make these events possible and I would love to see you there enjoying them!

This is part of my philosophy of investing in your community - when you spend your time and money on something you become a part of it in a totally new way. I didn't fully realize that until until recently, when "an event" changed to "my event." Observing a cool event or a sensational nonprofit isn't enough. Do whatever you feel you can to get involved. Those of you who already are involved, you know much enjoyment you get from taking part. Those who are looking to expand what you are involved in, what excites you? Is someone already doing it? Should you start it? Anything is possible in Buffalo. :-)
