The Enterprise — Michael Koff

Same square, more space: H&R Block held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 7, to celebrate its new location at Hamilton Square, formerly 20 Mall. Kathleen Lawler, store manager, wields the giant scissors. Over her right shoulder is Donna Chow, regional manager, while, at far right, holding the roll of ribbon is Jenni Bliven, president of the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce. Next to her is the chamber’s interim director, Erika Gauthier. Joining the real people, at back center, is a cardboard cutout of Richard Gartland, wearing a bowtie, an H&R Block tax preparer who is featured in the company’s advertisements.
