I had the pleasure of supporting a New York State Senate Resolution today that officially kicks off the 1st Annual New York State Museum Week, which starts today, May 31st, and runs through June 6th. This week is a great time to visit and support local museums and enjoy the unique attractions our areas provide, ranging from historical homes to living history museums and cultural attractions. About a dozen museums and historic sites in my district are officially partaking in this event. For information on the overall week and participating museums, visit http://www.iloveny.com/summer/themes/museum-week.aspx My district also includes numerous treasures like the Johnstown Historical Society Museum.
State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I - Schenectady) had the pleasure of presenting the Schalmont Girls Soccer Team with a New York State Senate Resolution on January 31st for winning last fall's New York State Class B Championship. Present for the event at the Senate Chambers were Head Coach Angelo Caschera, Schalmont Athletic Director Joe Gallo, and players Karley Murray, Angelina Gazzillo, Katie Saccocio, Hannah Saccocio, Madeline Saccocio, Nicoletta Cuttita, Hailee Metzold, Rachael Gac, Jenna Saccocio, Ciara Vitallo, Megan Strijek, Amanda Mascitelli, Allie Gallo, Isabella Borini, Taylor Florio, Shanna Reagan, Alexandra Cardinal, Diana DiCocco, and Gabrielle Juers.
"We all know and appreciate our veterans for keeping our country safe and free," Senator Farley said, "but do we ever take the time to tell them? Take time on Veterans Day to shake the hand of a veteran and say 'thank you' -- that all of the sacrifices were worth it. Also remember to thank our current military personnel for their service to our country."
