Frank Saladis, one of the NY Center's great supporters, listened to the stories at the Holiday Gathering and was moved to write the following poem there in the midst of the festivities. He read it to us at the close of the program. We'd like to share it with you.
During this special time of the year
team spreads happiness and cheer. New York Center
Like elves at the North Pole, they work through each day,
Building young minds and showing the way.
To a bright new future with opportunities galore,
And teaching the skills to make each and every dream soar.
There’s no better gift that one can bestow,
Than the knowledge that helps every student to grow.
As the holidays surround us and good will fills the air,
The gift from team NYCID is showing students we care.
So Happy Holidays to everyone and a wish for next year,
May your dreams be fulfilled and each day filled with cheer.
