HAPPY NEW YEAR! Wishing all our members and supporters peace and good health in 2019.
As the New Year gets underway for the League, all of our committees are busy at work. The newly formed Communications Committee is excited to announce the launch of our new website on January 2. The new site will be user-friendly, easy to navigate, and contain all the up-to-date information you need about League activities on the local, state and national level. Kudos to this committee, especially Ruth Mullen and Pam Neece who worked diligently to make this happen.
In lieu of the January General Meeting, the Human Trafficking Committee has put together a program on “Human Trafficking: Myths and Misconceptions” at the Monroe Township Library at 6:30pm on January 29. The presentation will include a panel of experts from various fields to discuss the issues and answer questions. Program supporters include Prevent Child Abuse NJ, the Monroe Township Human Relations Commission, India-US Forum of Monroe Township, Women Aware, Lead My Way, and the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking. The event is free, and all are welcome. Should any member need transportation to and from the event, please contact us.
In recognition of January as Human Trafficking Awareness Month, Mayor Tamburro has issued a special proclamation that will be presented to the League at the Town Council meeting on January 7 at 7pm.
Our February General Meeting will take place at the usual time: February 25 at 1pm at the Municipal Building Courthouse. Our guest speaker is Robert Goodall, the acting School Superintendent. Mr. Goodall will make a presentation on the Referendum coming up in March on the bond issue for a new school.
We will be looking forward to presentations and programs from other committees, including Natural Resources, Campaign Finance Reform/Fair Districts NJ, and Juvenile Justice.
Looking forward to seeing all of you soon.
