    On Friday, April 6th...(Good Friday), the Preston People from 121 (Brooklyn), will be holding a reunion breakfast. If you or anyone you know used to work at Preston's brooklyn terminal, please feel free to join us.

    It will be held at The Dakota in Staten Island, located at Forrest and Richmond Avenues. The coffee starts pouring around 9am.

    I worked at Smiths Transfer, which closed in 1988. We have a reunion twice a year. Tomorrow April 3 we will get together for breakfast,usually get about 15 guys. Not bad after all the years.

    Most of us keep in touch since the closure because many of us are still working. In NY City, all the terminals are within 1 mile of each other. Union and non union alike. Although we may be scattered like the lost tribes of Israel, we still cross paths many times. Today we had about 30 guys show up for breakfast. There were about a dozen others contacted that couldn't make it for one reason or another. Because of today, we are considering adding a second breakfast to the calander each year.
