Expanding the team

Finalized the bios for the creative/publication team and hope to share with the Board of Advisors on October 15.  The official appointment letter is ready and just needs to be fine tuned.  Will represent aaduna at SOHO Syracuse 2010, a small business show at the Pirro Convention Center at Oncenter, Syracuse, NY.  Left "Call" postcards at the Seward Library and Downtown Books and Coffee in Auburn yesterday, and did a similar task at The Center at High Falls/Fine Art Gallery, and LJ II's, a Jamaican restaurant both in Rochester.  My contact at LJ II's will get them out to folks this week.
