Gene Prisco Memorial, Today, January 5, 2014, 2-4PM

I still can't come to grips with Gene being gone. We spent New Years Eve at Loretta's house in Staten Island with some of the crew who have been together socially and politically since the early 70s, the crew that founded the Coalitions of NYC School Workers in the 70s and ICE a decade ago. Paul Baizerman, another core member, died 2 years ago.

This will be quite an event -- if you knew Gene or knew of the work he did there is plenty of room.

There is a bus running from the ferry. 

From Loretta Prisco:
Sometimes we win one at the DOE!

We will be celebrating Gene's life on Sunday, January 5, 2:00-4:00 PM at IS 61.
The school is located at 445 Castleton Avenue, corner of Brighton Avenue on Staten Island.  It is the school that Gene served kids, parents and staff for most of his career.  Both of our daughters graduated there and I served on the Executive Board of the PTA for many years.  Needless to say, it is close to all of our hearts.
It will be held in the auditorium which is on the second floor and wheelchair accessible.  Our daughters performed so many times in that auditorium!
I do not have email addresses for so many people who said that they wanted to come.  Please pass the invitation to those that knew Gene and would like to attend.

Love, Loretta
