Did you know that annual dance is a fundraiser for Wallace School's Field Day? Aside from the crowd of parents and teachers who attend, it usually attracts a slew of politicos.
Not this year.
GA was genuinely surprised at the poor showing.
Here's who I saw: 5th Ward Councilman Peter Cunningham, Freeholder Anthony Romano and ALL 5 members of the Kids First School Board: Rose Markle, Theresa Minutillo, Ruthy McAllister, Irene Sobolov and Leon Gold.
Noticeably ABSENT: ALL other School Board members. No Carmelo Garcia, no Peter Biancamano, no Frances Kearns, no Maureen Sullivan (not surprised since GA heard that she advised parents to pull their kid out of public school- YES, stay tuned for that one)
I guess election year Field Days get more love from those running for office. Although I don't think the kids notice the difference.
Also missed was regular-attendee Frank Raia, who has always given generously no matter what the season- and paid his own way. Unlike other Old Guard weasels who'd show up late so they could slip in without paying.
Anyway... as usual, LOTS of fun... disco dancing, great food, and of course BOOZE- enough to soak everyone's inner- Funky Chicken.
Much appreciation to Peter Cunningham and his Funky Chicken for their support.
And to all who came out to dance for Field Day 2012.
LA (Little Avenger) and all the kids of Wallace love Field Day- it's a day of non-competitive sporting events with the emphasis on teamwork and fun.
