Living in Rochester has been more than I could have dreamed possible. The Spring, Summer and Fall weather is amazing, the scenery is breathtaking and the people are so warm and friendly. Sometimes I feel like I’m in a movie and the whole thing is scripted because everything just goes so well.
This is how my day went yesterday. I was invited to Gazebo Park at the Village of Rochester Hills, where a group of community leaders were gathered to celebrate the launch of the Building the Civic ‘Net philanthropic initiative. We heard from the initiative’s first four grantees on how they’re using the Web to solve a public problem in the community.
Mayor Barnett was also among the speakers at the event and I got the opportunity to not only meet the mayor, but I also got to tell him all about this blog. He was truly intrigued and gave me his complete attention. I appreciated his sincere interest in my blog and eagerness to help me achieve my desire to spread the news about Rochester and all is has to offer the families living in the city.
I knew the people of Rochester were a uniquely nice group of people, but confirmation has been given as to where they get their model. The leader of the city is setting a wonderful example!
Great write up! The Civic ‘Net program is poised to do some real good in the Oakland County area. I’m glad you enjoyed enjoyed the event and that we had a chance to connect.
