Annual Meeting was well attended and the Betty Hill FORUM was, too!  Great day for LWV!

As the minutes will show, Annual Meeting confirmed the recommendation from Program Planning for a Study of the Town of Weston
Charter, and named seven (7) members willing to do research on the study. 

It was voted to raise the LWV of Weston dues NEXT year (for the 2012-13 period) to $50 individual, $75 family.

Other happenings:  It was noted that the Steering Committee formula continues to work for the Weston LWV;  discussion of the roles needed to be played to make success at the four (4) vital public meetings and ideas for other months' possible programs took place,; it was decided to reinstitute a "Legislative Wrap Up."

And then there was lunch and a spectacular presentation on "Food, Peace and Sustainability" by Dr. Gita Rajan of Fairfield University.

After the Annual Meeting, members and friends gathered for the 12th Annual Betty Hill FORUM on International Affairs.

Our speaker, Professor Rajan, in rapt discussion, sat with State LWV President during lunch - (see below, in center, at photo on right). 

Very well received, by an impressive audience - so many questions and terrific answers! 

Weston's First Selectperson (above, left), very interested, sat with the individual spearheading looking into creating a farm at Lachat (not pictured); another individual who was critical to getting Weston school cafeterias to serve healthier choices listened carefully from across the room (not pictured). 

Our speaker;  former long-time First Selectman attended, too (center photo, second from the left)!  And so we start on another year of League activitity, renewed and refreshed!!!

You are cordially invited to The League of Women Voters of Weston...
