Rivertowns LWV Fall 2014

Doing what we do best
Our focus for the past couple of months has been on voting. In September we joined many other Leagues in a nationwide letter-writing campaign to urge Congress to strengthen the Voting Rights Act. During the months of September and October we conducted voter registration, co-sponsored candidate nights, and distributed our ever- popular Voter Guides prepared by the Westchester County League.

Students Inside Albany
We are searching for a gifted high school student to sponsor at the annual Students Inside Albany event, to be held in the spring. If anyone knows of a student who can benefit from this experience, please let us know.

Membership Drive
We are happy to have a new Membership Chair, Ruth Kotecha, along with her committee of Inez Jacklin and Rhoda Barr. We look forward to some events in the coming months for current and prospective members.
