Hello everyone. I
hope you had a fantastic month. In Michigan, we have had a
few thaws and a lot of rain. Unfortunately, that has
created the worst pot holes in memory. Many of our streets
and expressways look like they are from war torn counties
with many mine fields and craters to avoid. Oh well...
We had a great time at
the annual UHY Cares / Dan McCarty Texas Holdem event in February. It
was sold out once again, and the event raised
nearly $25,000 which will support the Lupus
Alliance, and the American Cancer Society. Thank you Steve
McCarty, UHY Cares, and the Emagine Royal Oak team
for a first rate event. And thank you for the
hundreds of players and sponsors making this a big
to all of you who voted in our
13th Annual McCarty Metro Awards in this past month. Although the voting was light, I think all of our winners are very deserving. Congratulations to all of our winners including 2 newest members in our Hall of Fame,
McCarty and Kathlene McCarty.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who played our
7th NFL Pigskin Pickem challenge this past winter. It was
a lot of fun. Congrats to our winner, Mike Wiacek who is
also the first repeat champion.
We have many new things coming up in the McCarty Metro this year, including our next 72 hour Film Contest coming up this summer. If you or someone you know are not subscribed yet to the Metro, it's free, and its the best way to make sure you are aware of all the great things before they happen.

I leave you with a story of unselfish acts of kindness.
long time ago, a man
was driving his car, when he saw an older lady,
stranded on the side of the road. He saw that she
needed help. So he stopped his rough looking Pontiac near her
Mercedes and got out.
smiled, while he was approaching her, still she was
worried, as nobody had stopped for hours. Moreover,
he did not look safe, as his appearance was so poor
and shabby. He could see, how frightened she was, so
he tried to calm her: "I‘m here to help you,
don‘t worry. My name is Bryan Anderson".
tire was flat, so he had to crawl under the car.
While changing the tire, he got dirty and cut his his
the job was done, she asked how much she owed him
for his help. Bryan, while dirty and bleeding just smiled. He said: "If you
really want to pay me back, the next time you see
someone, who needs help, give that person the needed
assistance. and think of me". They lady thanked
him and drove
same evening, she decided to stop in a small cafe to
warm up and get some coffee and a bite to eat. That
place looked dingy and was practically empty. Then she saw a waitress, nearly
eight months pregnant, wiping her wet hair with a
towel. The waitress working a double shift looked
tired, but she had a sweet friendly smile and
gave the lady attentive service, even though she had
spent the whole day on her feet.
lady wondered how someone, who has so little, can be
so kind and giving to a stranger. Then she
remembered Bryan. The lady had finished her coffee and
paid with a hundred dollar bill. The waitress went
to get change and when she came back, the lady was
gone. She left a note on the napkin:
waitress also found four more one hundred bills
under the napkin.
that night after her shift while coming home, the waitress was
thinking about the lady and the money she left. She
was wondering, how the lady could know, how much she
and her husband needed it, especially now, when the
baby will soon arrive. She knew that her husband
worried about that, so she was glad to tell him good
she arrived, the husband was sound asleep. Instead
of waking him as she knew how hard he worked, and he
hadn't been sleeping well because of their financial
troubles, so she simply whispered.
"Everything's gonna be all right... Then she
kissed him tenderly on the cheek and said, "I love you
Here's to love, unselfish acts of kindness, and not letting them end
with you. Cheers!
