Dane Stropko - Elmira Office

2022 has been such a great year! Firstly, tax season has officially ended and summer has began. This has allowed for a more flexible work week, and the ability to get out of the office and enjoy some sun before the day is over.

A couple of weeks ago, I took a trip to Philadelphia with a long-time friend to see AJR in concert. We arrived in Philly early enough to enjoy the wonderful weather and walk down Main Street in Manayunk right near the hotel. We stopped to eat at a place named The Goat’s Beard. It was a neat city bar with an upbeat environment and delicious burgers. The Good Part by AJR also played while we were eating, so I took that as a sign that the day was meant to be great!

My dad got my daughter a birdfeeder for Christmas, but not just any ordinary birdfeeder- this one has suction cups that allows it to stick right to the window. We put it right up on the office/playroom window and WOW!! It is absolutely incredible the amount of birds that visit us each day! Some birds I never even knew we had in Rochester and other birds we’ve seen from afar but never realized how intricate and beautiful they are up close! If you’re looking to experience nature without having to even leave your house- I highly recommend this birdfeeder LINK

I love going to the beach for vacation, but have always enjoyed hiking as well. I’ve visited Watkins Glen State Park, the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, and other local hiking spots, but have always wanted to travel out West. I finally decided to take the trip and traveled out to Arizona at the end of May for a hiking trip. The hikes I was most excited for were the Grand Canyon, Devils Bridge, and Cathedral Rock!

Greg Thomas - Rochester Office

As many of you know I started fostering a then 5, now 6 year old little guy named Alejandro. This has been my first experience at raising a child while juggling the work life/home balance. I started taking Monday’s off and had to make some adjustments and use the PFL (Paid Family Leave) program offered by the state and thankfully such a program exists. It would have been very difficult, darn near impossible without the support of not only the state but MMB as well. Paid Family Leave was a program that I needed; not only to bond with the little guy but to deal with the challenges of being a first time dad in general.
