Manny seemed to reign over the event with the podium, speakers, and arte laid out before him. His image in the background was a powerful reminder of whose legacy we will honor on October 3rd. It also represented how Manny's life and work form the background, the foundation, of what we do at San Anto, and that he will be present in everything we do in the life of the organization.
