The Free Press staff from years gone by stopped at the Second Avenue office Friday afternoon to remember their time working at the newspaper, have a drink with current staff, and share stories. The earliest Free Press employee to come and help celebrate the newspaper’s 115 years, was Sam Caravetta, who worked in distribution between 1945 and 1948.
