Hi, Everyone.

It was great seeing a lot of you yesterday at CPC to add more handprints to our Buffalo. Attached is the group picture taken by the Buffalo News photographer. Hopefully there'll be an article with a picture or two in the News within the next couple of days regarding the recent news that the Governor has announced plans for a $30 million expansion and renovation at CPC, including new residential area with demolition of the old areas. Quite an about face from 10 months ago when the prospects for saving CPC were at their bleakest. Over that 5-year battle I always believed that no matter how bleak things appeared, that as long as we didn't give up we would eventually win. And so we did.

Those of you who were unable to make it yesterday should contact Patty. I think there should be an additional opportunity or two to add your own handprints.

Best and warmest regards, - Dave

PS - it has been one of my life's great good fortunes to have gotten to meet and fight this good fight with so many of you wonderful folks. Your determination and perseverance and belief through your own difficult personal and family struggles were and remain a true inspiration to me. Thank you.
