I’m new in town.  Most people at work are already married, with children, and/or settled down in a house in the suburbs.  So I have to step outside of work in order to meet people and make new friends.  It appeals to me greatly to have a community of friends who live close by.  So I joined a non-profit organization.  I’ve asked to be put on the fund raising committee, and my job is to track down alumnae of this organization, and look for “patrons.”
