The Amherst League has 178 members in 151 households.
We have 20 life members.
We have 26 new members.
Our focus this past year has been twofold: relicensing for five dams on the Connecticut River, and the Town’s purchase of the Hickory Ridge property in Amherst. I have participated - virtually - with regular LiveStream seminars through Connecticut River Conservancy touching on various aspects of the relicensing process. Two of these dams are in Massachusetts (Turners Falls dam, Northfield Mountain Pumped Storage Project), three are on the Vermont/New Hampshire border (Wilder, Bellows Falls, Vernon dams).
LWVA's annual meeting will be on line, June 3 at 7 p.m. Registration is required.
Because of the ongoing public health emergency, the League of Women Voters of Amherst will hold its Annual Meeting on line this year, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 2. The meeting will focus on three essential pieces of LWVA business: election of officers, approval of budget, and approval of changes in the bylaws. The reports of the Nominating and Budget Committees and the proposed Bylaw revisions were e-mailed to members on May 12, 2020.
