Albany, NY Votes for Women Reception. The LWVNYS 100th Anniversary Events Committee has been exploring chartering a bus that would begin in Buffalo with stops along the Thruway in Rochester, Syracuse and Utica. It would take us to Albany for the opening of the VOTES FOR WOMEN: CELEBRATING NEW YORK'S SUFFRAGE CENTENNIAL exhibit at the NYS Museum. The LWVNYS Education Foundation and the NYS Archives Partnership Trust are sponsoring an evening reception.

This will be an overnight trip, returning Sunday morning. The bus company has both a 39 passenger and a 56 passenger bus with rest room facilities. We estimate the cost for the bus would be about $85.00 per person. The State League has reserved rooms in two downtown hotels, the Hampton INN ($109.00) and Town Place Suites ($119.00). Both hotels will provide Sunday breakfast.
