We just had the Rochester Top 100 awards here. A very prestigious award, it recognizes the companies who have had the most growth over a three year period. Over 2200 people attended the event and I am happy to say that DiRisio Builders came in at number 35 on the list! And with only 2 employees, that is an amazing feat! So congratulations to Lou and Bill! Keep up the good work!
DiRisio Builders was the only home builder on the list.
Have a great Halloween! Watch out for ghosts and goblins and stay away from any tricks!
This weekend the local animal shelter here in Rochester, NY had its annual Barktober Fest. Yes, you guessed it. It is a dog extravaganza. I don’t have a dog, but promised my son I would take him there. They had bouncy houses, doggie dress-up,you name it. I get my son all organized, we drive down the road toward the shelter as I watch the sky getting blacker and blacker. Now, the shelter, Lollypop Farm is about 3 miles from where i live. As I am approaching the turn-off into the parking lot (which is filled with about 200 cars), the skies open. And I mean waaaay open. It is the worst rain I have ever seen. And then the lightning. The thunder. I told my son, “We aren’t stopping. This is unbelievable.” So I drive past as I watch about 400 people running, with dogs of every size and shape, and too many kids to count toward their cars. I turned the corner to go about and head toward home. I realize there are cars parked for about a mile down that way too! It was utter chaos!The rain subsided about an hour later and we went back. Most of the dogs were gone, so I guess you could say the day went to the dogs!
