I volunteered for the BataviaMainstreet organization recently. There's a link for it on my list to the right. The organization works to enhance and promote my town's downtown area. Because of my background, I began to work on getting some of the retailers in town up on the web. My first "client" was Mary Marconi-Popiel, proprietor of Special Occasions on the Avenue. It's a dress shop - prom dresses, party dresses. Those of you who know me probably figure I got the heebie-jeebies just walking in there. Initially I did, but I got over it. I might even learn something about fashion! The site is up. Take a look at: www.specialoccasionsontheavenue.com.
