AOA9 photos composite

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate AOA's 9th birthday last Friday at Cornerstone at the Plaza. It was great to see so many people and catch up, or to meet for the first time.

There are many, many photos from the party below. All of them are by Timothy Raab.

And thanks to everyone who helped pull together such a fun party:
+ Chef Matt Joyce and the crew at Cornerstone and Mazzone Hospitality
+ Crisan, for making desserts and a cake shaped like The Egg
+ DJ Trumastr
+ Alex Waters, who created an ESP-inspired painting during the party.
+ Mitchell Biernacki from Daydream Hunter Creations, who made an ESP bowling set for us

Thank you again for all the birthday wishes, whether you were there celebrating with us in person or in spirit.

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
