Another T-day Reminder

As your resident Turkey-in-Chief, I'm trying to adhere to our yearly tradition of honoring all those of your neighbors and "associate neighbors" who have helped make the past year in AOTB as much of a success as it has been.

Here's my not-so-complete listing of folks I believe merit special mention when it comes to giving thanks. These special folks spent copious amounts of their personal time and effort to make our fair city the great home it has been to us; so, if you see one of them walking down the street, just say thanks!

If I've left out some deserving person, please chalk it up to the diminishing powers of whatever leetle gray cells that are left to me.
- Dave Delia, President POA-AOTB

  • Philip Allen, for his great editorial skills and sage counseling.
  • Tee Allen, for his continued help with our pier.
  • Marc Apter, for the best ever Wine & Jazz Fest and end-of-summer Family Picnic.
  • Kinley Bray, for jumping in on our legal issues--pro bono--always a plus!
  • Alison Buckler, for her 2nd 5K run, and her 3rd Holiday Party.
