Goodbye, Megan!

                As of Friday, July 26th, Neighborhood Housing Services of South Buffalo has said goodbye to its VISTA for 2012-13, Megan McLaughlin. Though we are not getting a new VISTA member for the upcoming year, the work of our previous VISTAs will not be forgotten. They have set us up with a great social media and website program that will live on.
                Megan’s prime responsibilities in our office this year were maintaining and updating our website, running our Facebook, writing our blog, writing press releases, and assisting with other administrative tasks. Her efforts will continue to be seen through our blog, where she continued to write for future posts.

                Moving on from our organization, we wish her all the best and hope she doesn’t forget to visit us!
