SOME NICE NEWS
I recently received some nice news that I thought I’d share. The Guides Association of New York City (GANYC) will be holding their First Annual GANYC Apple Awards ceremony in March of 2015. The association has informed me that I’ve been nominated for one of their awards, the one for “Outstanding Achievement in Support of NYC Culture.” Needless to say, I’m extremely flattered by the nomination.
