I've also made an effort to participate in community activities. I can't think of a better way to network with and support the local folks and businesses.
The volunteer fire department had a Latter Dedication and NY fire fighters came to speak about 9/11. The ceremony was lovely-especially the bag-pipers.
The kids enjoyed the big fire engines and meeting the fire fighters too.
The experience was rewarding in more ways than we ever imagined. Not only did we support a good cause-the kids' pictures made it in a local magazine. It's just a small, free magazine, but they were so excited to see themselves in it!
