Note from Lucas (our EC intern) (2012-05-11)
Kind of sad that today is my last day in the office for the semester, I've had a lot of fun working here and it's been a great learning experience as well! I know Jennifer and Lizz are going to miss me ever so terribly, but I will be coming back a few times a month over the summer to continue working on a few projects for next year, and of course (as I'm reminded every day), to help out with the Street Painting Festival!
I'm very excited for everything that we are working on for next year, and I hope that we will be able to continue to build on this year's success. Actually, scratch that. I'm confident next year is going to be a big year.
I look forward to being able to continue working with EDD and all of the wonderful people I have had the pleasure of meeting, but for now, its time for a little vacation! Moving back home tonight and then leaving on Sunday to spend 2 weeks in Peru!
Thank you all for your support thus far!

So excited for this weekend! Starting the weekend off tonight with the Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes Chamber Series concert at the Chemung Valley History Museum starting at 7:30pm. They will feature latin music (complete with classical guitar) and selections of music that connects with the museum's "Made in Chemung" exhibit. Saturday, April 28 is Arbor Day! I'm beyond happy that there is an Arbor Day Celebration here in Elmira complete with planting trees at Brick Pond starting at 10am. Bring the family, all kids will receive a seedling to plant at home and Arbor Day goodies! See you Downtown!
Cash Mob (2012-04-26)
