Dedication ceremony held before Pioneer football game
Utica, NY (10/01/2012)- Before the football game at Utica College recently, a crowd gathered at the Charles A. Gaetano Atheletic Stadium for the dedication of the new Connie Gaetano Plaza. The plaza was built in memory of humanitarian and civic contributor Connie Gaetano.
She was remembered as an incredibly giving spirit, a philanthropist, a generous contributor to the community and a family matriarch. Her husband Charlie Gaetano and children Bill, Brian, Chuck, Colleen, Mary and Gregory Gaetano were all a part of the Saturday ceremony to commemorate the extraordinary woman that Connie Gaetano was.
The renovations to the stadium included adding a comfort station, with new restrooms.

Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medicines and Pediatrics, which has been a great asset in working in a health care profession. Fieldwork hours with both healthy and hospitalized children including a wide range of ages and abilities were an invaluable experience. I remember how exciting it was during my internship when I was able to actually relate theory into practice."
