Thanksgiving this year flipped the script a bit. We gathered smaller than usual and many use other means such as Zoom or FaceTime to connect with others who usually joined us. Something remains the same: our need to give. Many rose up to support causes we already support, and special associated appeals in light of COVID-19.

At Gotham meetings we’ll mention the “Power of Gotham.” How through Fredslist which I have moderated since last fall, we find help for our needs, some rather difficult, place friends and relatives and some of us in new gigs. Many of us look good to friends, relatives – and clients who benefit from the introductions to the professionals in our Gotham tribe. Through the relationships we develop, business results. And not to diminish the social, real and enduring friendship resu...
