The public is invited to the 47th Annual Meeting of the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons, Shelter Island and North Fork, which takes place on Sunday, May 19, at the East Hampton Public Library, 159 Main Street.

After mingling and refreshments at 1 p.m., the business portion of the Annual Meeting will begin at 1:30 p.m., to include adoption of the League budget for 2024-25, election of officers and directors, adoption of local program, and the presentation of two annual awards—the League’s Betty Desch Student Leadership Award of a $2,000 scholarship to a high school graduating senior, and the Carrie Chapman Catt Award to a League member for longtime distinguished service.

Guest speaker after the business meeting is Steve Long, executive director of the East Hampton Historical Society, who will give a PowerPoint talk titled “A Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the East Hampton Historical Society,” featuring the society’s many historic buildings and the launching of its participation in a new arts and culture app Bloomberg Connects, now used by over 350 museums worldwide.

After his talk, Mr. Long has graciously invited all on a complimentary tour at approximately 3:30 p.m. of the newly-opened Dominy Shops Museum—the home and workshop, on the original site, of the East Hampton family that is famous for its master craftsmanship of 18th and 19th century furniture and clocks and the nearby Hook Windmill. The importance of the Dominy family to American craft is made evident by the fact that the workshop was even recreated at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware.

The Dominy Shops is located at 73 North Main Street (across from the IGA), with parking behind the museum.

Reservations for the Annual Meeting and tour are being taken on the League phone at 631-324-4637.
