I just wanted to drop a note to all my friends to wish each and every one of you a happy, prosperous and healthy 2002.
Many of you have volunteered and/or participated in our World Trade Center IT Mobilization Consortia where over 500 of our
best friends helped us to help so many of our fellow New Yorkers to recover from the devastation of September 11. I just
want to add an extra thank you for your selfless efforts. Our efforts are now winding down but not before making a mark and
meeting our goals.
Through the past, most difficult year for our country and for many of us, we at XB5 Partners have been most thankful for
all of your support and we look forward to a successful and rewarding year for each of us and for the country as a whole.
