Question to nonprofits: Who do you think you are?

Eating a bratwurst at Boston Harbor last Friday I was greeted warmly by the marina manager. It was my first visit this year to the marina’s weekly summer “beer-b-ques” – gatherings on the dock where folks eat well, taste local brews and socialize. Families with kids and dogs mix with both old timers and young people working at their summer jobs on the water. I spent many Friday nights there last summer eating grilled salmon, watching the sunset and chatting. It’s a place that does what it does really well.
