Judy McIntosh- Elmira Office
This time of year it’s so easy to feel charitable. There’s that peaceful, “feel good” feeling in the air – no matter what holiday you celebrate. I love giving and love watching others experience the joy of being the giver. And “giving back” here at Mengel, Metzger, Barr is not just a Holiday occurrence – it’s in our culture year round. I love the generosity of choosing a few local charities to support instead of a Company Holiday gift exchange (this year the American Red Cross, Catholic Charities and Arctic League).

Kat DeBellis - Rochester Office
I’m not too sure how it’s the end of October already – have felt the rush of the cold coming to Rochester, and we all know the worst is yet to come!  
I’m still not too sure how I made it through all the deadline, but I think going to Vegas every other month has helped.  Jim and I went in August for our yearly thirteen day trip, I went back in late September with the girls for my sister-in-laws birthday, and in December, I’ve decided to tag onto a tax seminar trip with Jim.   Hey I only have to pay for my flight, and points will cover that!

Sylest Williams - Rochester Office

In just a few short weeks, I will be returning to Klein Steel, Inc for interim fieldwork. Even though I will be working extremely hard, I will also be having fun because they will be hosting their annual Halloween office party! This year Eva and I will be the only ones partaking in their Halloween festivities because Eric will be living his best life in California for training. Eva and I have still not come up with any solid costumes ideas so were hoping you can help us figure out a great couple or best friend theme that we can make ourselves. Please send any and all ideas to Eva and myself and we thank you in advance for your contribution to this year’s Halloween bash!!

Eva Campanis- Rochester Office
I had the opportunity to travel to NYC four weeks in a row this summer! I like traveling to the city because it is a nice change of scenery and exploring with my coworkers is fun, however I am very excited to be sleeping in my own bed for a while. Not to mention my poor furry child misses me when I’m not home (I think – you can never tell with cats). My roommates will be thrilled when I am home again so he can stop bothering them for attention and waking them up at 5am because he’s hungry again. I am excited that I just booked a flight to visit a friend in Portland, the flight will be much longer than the Rochester - Laguardia flights, but I am excited to explore a new city!

Tony Sandonato - Rochester Office

I have had the opportunity this summer to pursue one of my passions, tennis.  I played on two competitive leagues through the United States Tennis Association (USTA).   I played first singles for my USTA men’s team.   We won the Monroe County Division and advanced to New York State Regionals.  At Regionals, our team came in a respectable second out of four teams from across New York State.  My USTA mixed doubles team also won our Monroe County Division and we played at Regionals on September 8th , also coming in second.  Although these are competitive teams and we take our tennis seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously and always find time for good laughs along the way.
