  1. Julio Ruiz was among the clients from the FUSE program treated on June 15th to a shopping spree of sorts at Stratford’s Career Closet, where they were allowed to select off the rack clothing appropriate for upcoming job interviews.
  2. June 28th was the opening of the Poetry Café under the Stars, 2012. We had warm air, blue skies and a standing room only capacity crowd. The poetry was deeply felt creating waves of enthusiasm and spontaneous applause. The special guest was Judith Baumel who is an accomplished poet and resident of the Bronx. On the judges’ panel she was joined by Alison Brown from Damian FCC; our occupational therapy consultant, Suzanne White; Diane Bonavota/ VP for Program Planning and Development; alumnus Tracy Smith and Eugene Layne from VESID. Thanks also to Jane Velez and Debbie Pantin for joining us. Carmen Alvira and her crew did a great job transforming the patio into a performance space, Philip Mallory shone as the evening’s MC and DJ Victor Moczo kept the sound and music going. We hope you can join us at our next Poetry Café event scheduled for July 26th at 7:00 PM.

  6. Our very own Bernadette Lewis was one of 350 volunteers who participated in the June 23rd simulated JetBlue plane crash at JFK airport. The drill also included a car bombing and explosion into a passenger terminal. Smoke machines were used to add to the effects Over 200 firefighters, police, doctors, EMS paraprofessionals and federal agents responded and reacted to the crash providing evacuation maneuvers and medical attention to the volunteer victims.

Standing by were evaluators who were on hand to record the emergency drill and prepare an assessment report.
