Title: 28 items (9-3-10) sponsored by The Ultimate Networking Event

Anyone else planning to attend the Red Bull Flugtag?  Should be a fun and different afternoon.

Anyone have interest in playing soccer this fall?  Co-ed league on Saturdays.  Email me if interested.

For those in Avalon on Saturday afternoon, I just learned about this fundraiser.

Worst stat I read this week: Thirty-seven percent of kids who enter 6th grade in Philly don’t finish high school. That number is 43 percent for African-American males, and 51 percent for Latino males. Oy. [WHYY].  No wonder Philadelphia has such a bright future.

As always, please talk to me about your real estate needs.....please.... - Mark
