FROM THE PRESIDENT
 
This month we reflect, give thanks and count our blessings for our families, friends, clients and the wonderful adventure of life.  
In this season, so many homes are already decked out in anticipation of the coming celebrations. Excitement is certainly in the air. It's also that time of year where all kitchen projects absolutely must have been completed before Thanksgiving day. Hopefully they were!
   Next month our biggest event of the year, the annual Winter Social, will take place on December 13th. Hosted by the GROHE Live! showroom at 160 Fifth Ave (at 21st Street), it promises to be an even bigger party than the year before. It also marks the completion of our membership drive, and we will be giving away two memberships as door prizes, but you have to be present to win! So do remember to mark your calendar and register early when you receive your invitation; space will be limited.
   Get ready to have fun, spirits and good cheer as we close out another fantastic year. From the entire board of the NKBA Manhattan Chapter, we look forward to celebrating with you. Cheers!
