Happy 14th Anniversary to me, joined AR in 2009

Real Estate Agent with Howard Hanna RE Services, Dayton, OH

I don't have enough words to describe how much I enjoyed being on the Active Rain since 2009. I was just a spectator for almost first 10 years. The Pandemic woke me up and I began connecting aggressively on Active Rain. The first person I noticed who was on active rain was Margaret Rome, whom I met way back in the 90's. then I met so many great sharing people.

The zoom calls that started in 2020 gave me chance to interact more directly by listening, watching and speaking to this great group. I can't even describe how much grateful for the knowledge and experience I have access to for just being in this elite group. 

Thank you, Thank you & Thank you each and everyone that is on Active Rain especially the ones on Tuesday Zoom calls!!!

Hello Sham - Happy ActiveRain Anniversary.   It's always interesting to me to read such stories from the AR membership.  The stories share many similarities, yet they are uniquely individual.  Congratulations.

Wow , happy 14th anniversary! It sounds like the experience of AR really changed for you when you stopped being a 'spectator' - that is fantastic!

Happy Anniversary, Sham! I must admit you might just take first prize for the longest "lurking" around AR of anyone. I lurked for almost a year and I know others who have done about that much time. But 10 years... wow! Anyway, we love seeing you here in the Rain and look forward to seeing more of you as time goes by.
