On November 14, 2013, the Patchogue Artspace Building hosted a presentation titled “Our Immigrant Nation: Journey into a New Frontier of Storytelling.”
Keegan & Keegan, Ross & Rosner, LLP, along with Active Voice, Of Colors, and the Greater Patchogue Foundation, Inc. were proud sponsors.
The program highlighted the history of many of the participants’ background pointing out that we are all immigrants. Undoubtedly the highlight of the evening was the story of a 90 year old lady telling of her experience as a new immigrant in New York City in the second grade, over 80 years ago. In her brief but moving and telling story, she reminded all that whether your ancestors arrived on the Mayflower in 1620 or traveled by bus from Mexico last year, we are indeed a nation of immigrants.
