On Saturday, October 29th, the AFT Local 1904 proudly joined with other members of our campus community in celebration of Montclair State University's Homecoming 2022!. We were situated at our usual table--this year located on Chapin Drive--staffed by our Office Manager extraordinaire, Deb Corasio, along with Treasurer Mike Heller, Vice President for Internal Affairs Brian Abrams, and President Rich Wolfson. We welcomed alums and current students, members of their family, and other members of our community, and gave out AFT t-shirts, pens, pencils, key chains, and other various and sundry Union swag. Like last year, we shared important information with current students and their families about the Local's scholarship opportunities. Thank you to everyone who supported us--and it was great to see those of you who stopped by to say "hi"!
