In 1981 Ramapo College celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a roast of its first president George Potter. It was a joyous occasion enjoyed by all, especially President George Potter. In addition to President Potter seven faculty were roasted as well.
Mike Policastro portrayed Tim Robinson, Tom Goss played Fred Waring, Ted Michelfeld was Teo Halpern, Marshall Harth was Herman Kaufman, Don Fucci was Richard Bond, Jen Mazza was Yole Sills, and Sibi Raciti was Eddie Saiff.
Stuart Wood was President George Potter. He had something to say about each of the others on the dais, and also calls up Roz Koss to ask the audience, which was making too much noise, to quiet down. Suddenly, out of the audience steps the real George Potter, complaining about his imposter; Potter then steps to the microphone and entertains all in the final minutes. Great fun was had by all; a moment in time never to be repeated.
