Town of Colonie Supervisor Paula Mahan along with Town Board members Paul Rosano and Melissa Von Dollen issued a proclamation today honoring Marvin and Company, P.C. on the occassion of its 95th anniversary.
I am pleased to allocate “My95” to the Troy HS Quiz Bowl National Competition. Trivia plays a big part in Danna's life. Through trivia she met the mother of one of the members of the Troy High School MasterMinds Team. Their team earned the opportunity to compete at the National High School Quiz Bowl Championships to be held in Atlanta, Georgia. The team has actually qualified for the past two years, but didn't compete last year because they weren't able to raise enough funds for the trip.
This year marks the 95th anniversary of Marvin & Company Certified Public Accountants and Consultants. In reflecting on this recently, our thoughts kept returning to the people who have made a lasting difference at every stage of our evolution and growth—our clients and our people.
When you think about people who truly are in need here in our country, you might visualize families living in poverty, homeless men and women or malnourished children. I know I have. But like layers of an onion, a big problem often is traceable to many underlying causes—and it also breeds a host of smaller, but no less insidious, issues. Those issues often are overlooked; yet for the people they affect, they’re problems that impact their dignity and obstruct their path to better days.
