In March and April 2020, we tragically lost two beloved, long-time community members to COVID-19: C&C Carpenter Steve Antonakos and faculty member and alumnus Gino Crocetti ’59. Their passings were terrible blows to us all, and their absences are still felt deeply across the school.
We are finally able to honor them with an in-person memorial service in May and a fund to support a cause they both held dear, the C&C Shop.
ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS:
(August 16, 1957–March 26, 2020),
City and Country School Carpenter
Gino Crocetti ’59
(October 18, 1945–April 6, 2020),
City and Country School Teacher
GINO’S AND STEVE’S PLACE
This fund has been established in celebration of the lives of Stephen Antonakos and Gino Crocetti ’59, beloved members of the City and Country School community lost to COVID-19. Donations will support the building of a permanent Shop space at C&C, which was important to Steve, our Carpenter, and Gino, who built many projects in the Shop. It will be a place where our community can remember Steve and Gino, and how much they loved C&C.
Donations to Gino’s and Steve’s Place can be made here.
Those unable to attend the memorial for Steve and Gino may watch the livestream on Saturday, May 21 at 2:00 p.m. here. A recording will also be available following the memorial.
If you would like to attend but did not receive an invitation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All guests attending the memorial must show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to entering the School. As of the date of this message, an individual is considered “fully vaccinated” after at least 14 days have passed since the individual received their (i) second dose of a two-dose vaccine series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or (ii) single dose of a vaccine that only requires one-dose, such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. A booster is highly encouraged, and guests should be aware that COVID-related protocols may change prior to the event.
