Thank you again to everyone who attended our first annual meeting last week, most especially to Adina Giannelli, who provided (with very little notice), a fascinating discussion on the role of court-appointed child advocates in the state. Minutes will be available soon.

We have a lot going on this summer, so be on the lookout for a more compendious message soon, but we have two timely pieces of news to impart:

Our League solicited a series of guest editorials from local educators, historians, and writers on civics topics for the Recorder , and the series, which began yesterday, will run between now and July 4. We hope you'll read and spread the word! Today's installment, by BJ Roche on freedom of the press, is available here . A big thank you to member Pat Leuchtman, who spearheaded this effort!

Please join us tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5:30pm for a social meet-up: Trivia Night at Lefty's ! We had a great time last month, and hope to see even more of you tomorrow. Please join us for an inexpensive and fun night out. All are welcome! Lefty's Brewing Co., 301 Wells St in Greenfield.

If you're interested in setting up a social meet-up in your town, let us know! With a summer of candidate forums and voter registration drives ahead, it'd be lovely to spend a few nights just hanging out. Or engaged in trivia death battles. Either / or. :)
In League,

Marie Gauthier, President
Nicole Moore, Vice President
Marge Michalski, Treasurer
Laura Luker, Secretary
