Summer 2013

Alas, a fifth summer of goals for Bob Grimaldi and Kelly Fronczak!  Whether you have been following us since our first summer of goals in 2009 or you have joined to help us along the way, we welcome all of our family and friends to help us accomplish the goals on our list.  We have a lot of unaccomplished goals left over from last summer, so we hope to spend time with as many of our friends as possible to achieve as many great things as we can.  Check back often for updates to the list and photos of completed goals, and feel free to post any comments/suggestions/offers to help!  Here’s to a great Buffalo summer!

  1. I think one of your goals should be to see a concert at Red Rocks in Colorado! (or at least come to Colorado and say hi)


  2. This morning I was on my way to Niagara Falls to pick up my boyfriend. His muffler broke off his car on his way to visit his mother in the hospita yesterday. Needless to say, it has been a stressful time for us and we’ve been feeling very short on good luck.

    I stopped at Wegmans to grab us some coffees and danishes before I made the trip, and when I came out, there was a gift certificate to Five Points Bakery, a place right around the corner from me, randomly tucked under my windshield wipers. I rushed to say thank you to you two, you happened to give that letter to a couple who really needed a smile. I feel overwhelmed! Thank you so much, I’l be sure to pay it forward this summer.
