Jim Gilcreast read a very appropriate quote from Kofi Annan, a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and Secretary-General of the United Nations:
“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope. It is a tool for daily life in modern society. It is a bulwark against poverty, and a building block of development….Literacy is a platform for democratization, and a vehicle for the promotion of cultural and national identity…...For everyone, everywhere, literacy is, along with education in general, a basic human right...Literacy is, finally the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman, and child can realize his or her full potential.”

How about that Gala! A great event for our club, and for the students and staff at the Kizirian School, as we raised over $60,000 and enjoyed a fun evening in the bargain.
Event Co-chair Susan Kearney Kaplan presented the Richard A. Kaplan Award to keynote speaker, former Patriot receiver Malcolm Mitchell. Malcolm gave an inspiring talk about his reading difficulties and his current dedication to literacy.

Randy Dittmar and Cap Willey were instrumental in making a significant change in tax law which proposes that the state levy a tax on pass through entities, single member LLC;s disregarded for tax purposes, sole proprietors, and certain rental operations that rise to the level of a business activity.
The Effect: By taxing the entity on its net income directly, it moves the deduction to the entity level thereby avoiding the state and local tax deduction limitation on your itemized deductions. This can decrease your taxable income at the federal level. Randy advises checking with your tax advisor.
