In addition to her leadership at the library, Dr. Conroy also  volunteers for the Ambulance Corp serving Roscoe and as Town Historian. 

“Dr. Conroy is one of those people who never stops," said Senator Metzger. "She is always serving her community, whether it's helping to educate and inform community members through her library and Town Historian work, or helping save lives as a first-responder. This award recognizes her many contributions, and her outstanding dedication and commitment, and I thank her for her public service."  

Later in the day, Metzger traveled to Liberty to celebrate the Liberty Diner's 30th Anniversary, and presented owners Nick and Helen Tsicaros and their daughter, Irene, with the New York State Senate Empire Award in recognition of their contributions to the community and the local economy.

Congratulations to the Tsicaros family on receiving the Empire Award, which is the highest Senate recognition for a business,” said Senator Metzger.
