PERSONAL NEWS #160

Week of February 9th was very busy at work with lots of meetings regarding BSC [ie: Business Services Center], of which I’ve been part of since mid-January. On Monday the 9th … I also worked that afternoon at AIG helping out with copying tax returns.

Wednesday evening, February 11th, I participated in the NYDoP CCR Committee conference call and our main focus was prep work for following evening presentation at CB B11.

Thursday evening, February 12th, I took the F train to Kevin and Irene’s charming home in Brooklyn. At 6:45am Kevin and I drove to Bensonhurst, met up with Howard, and gave a presentation on Dept of Peace to Community Board B11. After our presentation we handed out flyers; plus briefly talked with a local newspaper reporter, staff person from Councilmember Gentile’s office, Monsignor Castello, Senator Vallone and Councilmember Gentile. From there the three of us headed over to Vegas diner for a late dinner and discussion on many diverse topics. Kevin drove Howard and I to our respective homes and came up with a glimmer of an idea for Brooklyn Pub Crawl for Peace. More later…………….

Tuesday evening, February 17th, was NYDoP’s first “speaker” event of 2009 and was held at Healthy Body NYC near Madison Square Park. Liz Gannon-Graydon was our speaker and, as always, her talks are so interesting and uplifting. The main topic of her discussion was called “What Better Looks Like”. About 10 of us attended and even my friend Cielito came by.

Thursday, February 19th, I worked most of the day at AIG helping with filing and tax returns.

[Duchess Note: More personal news to follow ... plus week of March 23rd an account of the 5th Annual Peace Conference from Washington DC. Stay tuned..................]
