City, museum fete artist Bromberg on 102nd birthday
GENEVA – About 50 people crowded into the Geneva Post Office March 6 for a ceremony to dedicate the painting “Fish Fry in the Park,” which has hung there since 1940, and to honor the artist, Manuel Bromberg, on this day, his 102nd birthday, with a proclamation.
Mayor Kevin Burns noted that Bromberg had not been recognized for his work on behalf of Geneva for 79 years.
“We are guests of … the postmaster … today, and to commemorate and celebrate a gentleman, who, for 79 years, has not been so recognized and appreciated,” Burns said. “And to set the record straight, and set the story clear with respect to what our friend Manny has done for the post office and also for our community.”
