Assembly Member Amy Paulin - Weekly Virtual Events - Week of May 28

Eastchester Democratic Committee
May 28 2020

As our state continues to make progress, it is important to continue to take precautions as we ease back into the public sphere. While we remain mostly in our homes, it remains as vital as ever to stay engaged with our community. Luckily, our community organizations make this an enjoyable and relatively easy effort by providing accessible virtual and limited in-person events. I hope many of you find time this week to take in some of the great virtual events hosted by the wonderful libraries, cultural institutions and community organizations in the cities, towns, and villages of the 88th District and beyond.

If you are interested in any of the virtual events listed below, please check their websites for any updates or cancellations.

If you have a virtual event that you’d like me to include in the coming weeks, send the information to paulina@nyassembly.gov.

Sincerely,
Amy Paulin
