33rd Anniversary L'Ambiance Plaza Tragedy Bridgeport

April 23, 2020 marked the 33rd anniversary of the L'Ambiance Plaza tragedy.  Due to social distancing and public safety it was decided not to have the usual remembrance.  A special thanks goes to WICC600 for continuing the tradition with the remembrance on the Tony and Melissa show yesterday morning.  Tony and Melissa did a great job and thank you to all the participants who called in.  A wreath was presented at the memorial site by the daughters of victim Richard McGill, located behind Bridgeport City Hall.  IBEW Local 488 lost our member Donald Emanuel on that tragic day.  The victims of this tragedy will never be forgotten.  You can listen to the full podcast of the tribute here:
