Our Ernest Burke Statue Committee
Sends a Shout-Out to Tony
Peter Brooks was thoughtful enough to take a short video of Tony Pagnotti meeting the crowds of Havre de Grace at our Independence Celebration Parade! And a crowd it was! Tony Pagnotti is the weekend meteorologist for Fox45 Morning News. Those who are working steadfastly to have a statue erected of Havre de Grace native son, Ernest Burke, are so appreciative of Tony’s participation in their committee and in the parade.
Ernest Burke was a Negro League Baseball Player and very well-known for his anti-drug role model and the work he did speaking with students throughout his life. He is a ‘champion in life’ – especially someone our young athletes can look up to.
Thank you Peter and Tony!
