The event, hosted by the Friends to honor Assemblyman Mike Spano and Groundwork Hudson Valley for their support of the Aqueduct, took place on October 21, a beautiful autumn day, at the juncture of the trail and Lamartine Avenue.
Since Mike Spano had an important meeting in Albany, our good friend, former State Senator Nick Spano, stood in for his brother, pulling off the paper cover of one of the signs with appropriate panache.
Executive Director Rick Magder and Community Development Director Vernon Brinkley of Groundwork Hudson Valley revealed the second sign with toddler Liliane Ameen offering advice.
We were delighted to have so many of our members and supporters in attendance. The group in the accompanying photo is just a partial representation of those who came out to admire the signs and applaud their function: to remind every walker that under the trail is a National Historic Landmark.
The event was managed by Charlotte Fahn, Elisa Zazzera, and Joe Kozlowski, with Mavis Cain doing the introductions.
