Memories of Donna Marie Pagano Arrigale
Ok! I'm going to leave a memory of my own!
If you remember the school newspaper, The Arlingtonian, you might remember that I was the News Editor. The best news event I covered was the time Robert Kennedy, the President's brother, held a news conference in Poughkeepsie. The Editor, Rudy Mancuso, and I eagerly attended! The man was a prince among men! He treated us in exactly the same way as all of the rest of the media even though we were t only school newspaper represented! He shook hands with us, answered a couple of general questions, and then we were on our way back....riding on Cloud Nine....to AHS. As if that wasn't enough, the man actually sent me a 'thank you' letter for being in attendance at his venue! I still have that letter.... Signed personally by Mr. Robert Kennedy! I cannot begin to tell you how distressing it was to hear that someone had shot and killed this vibrant man! I hold my memory of meeting him in the highest esteem! He was destined for so much more!
