The Southern NY Branch will be having a 125th Anniversary Proclamation read on Nov. 28, 2006 at 2:00 p.m. in the Mayor's Conference room at City Hall in Binghatmon,NY. Matthew Ryan is Binghamton's mayor. He, and his staff, have been very generous in facilitating this event. In addition to the Proclamation, someone from the branch will speak giving an overview of the history and mission of AAUW. The media has been invited.
City Hall is located on Hawley Street in the Government Plaza. Facing the plaza, City Hall is on the left. Parking can be obtained in the parking ramp across from Government Plaza on Hawley Street. All are welcome to attend.
This is a wonderful way to promote AAUW and one's own branch. We have already had interest in obtaining membership from the mayor's asistant. I have invited her to attend our December luncheon. This is a great membership tool.
