- 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.
