SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

To the Northeast Bronx Assn friends of Vincent Prezioso,

We regret to inform you of the passing of Bridget Prezioso on Wed, April 22, 2020 after a short but hard-fought battle with heart failure at age 88.  She was the beloved wife to Vincent, adored mother to Vincent Jr and Genevieve, and loving grandmother to Veronica and Thomas.  Her passing has created a void in our lives that can never again be filled.

Due to recent events that have restricted our ability to celebrate her life in the traditional manner, we are unable to hold a wake or any form of public viewing normally used to pay respects.  Instead, we respectfully request that you make a small donation to the American Heart Association in her name.  In the current climate, we feel that this would be the most appropriate method to honor her memory.  Donations can be made online and are tax-deductible.  Please go here for more details:  http://www2.heart.org/goto/bridgetprezioso

Thank you, The family of Bridget Prezioso

Condolences may be sent to:  Vincent Prezioso, Northeast Bronx Assn, POB 681 Baychester Station, Bronx, NY 10469-0681

A Note About Politics: The Northeast Bronx Association is organized as a Civic/Social Welfare Organization. According to our corporate charter, and federal/state regulations related to our status as a not-for-profit organization, NEBA is not permitted to engage directly or indirectly in political campaigns or endorse candidates for public office. When NEBA invites elected representatives to speak at our meetings, we do so in the interest of establishing a dialogue with those representatives for the benefit of the residents of our community. They are there to inform the community of activities within their jurisdiction and to answer questions.  NEBA cannot allow them to campaign for election. Since its inception NEBA has attempted, and in most cases succeeded, to establish good relations with ALL our elected representatives – regardless of political affiliation, to further the interests of our community and to obtain government funding for our programs, which benefit our community, and which are provided to the community at no cost.  We are extremely grateful for the support and funding provided by our elected representatives. However, that relationship is not to be implied as an endorsement for any candidate running for political office. In the same vein NEBA will not allow anyone who attends our meetings to engage in politicking or campaigning.  Anyone who has a concern related to our community who wishes to speak at our meetings can do so; provided they inform us what it is they wish to speak about – prior to the meeting. NEBA reserves the privilege to allow or disallow a speaker based upon a determination of the relevance of their topic to our community.
