After Legislator Fleming’s talk, the business portion of the League meeting will include adoption of the budget for 2016-17, the election of officers and directors, and the adoption of local program.
Also on the agenda is the presentation of the Betty Desch Student Leadership Award of a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior from a local high school, and the announcement of the two students, 11th graders Rachel Hoyt and Madeline Koral of the Bridgehampton School, who were awarded trips to the NYS League Education Foundation’s annual “Students Inside Albany” conference, May 22-24, where they will learn about state government and spend time on the floor of the NYS Senate and Assembly with Senator Kenneth LaValle and Assemblyman Fred Thiele, Jr.
