New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms LEGISLATIVE DAY March 17, 2015

Peg and I left Lockport around two p.m. on Monday the 16th and headed towards Albany.  The drive there seemed SO long.  When we got to Albany, we went directly to CAPITAL BUFFET......for  their Chinese buffet, which we had there last year.  And then on to our hotel (Ramada).  Peggy went to the work out room to use the treadmill and I got ready for bed and watched one episode of CRIMINAL MINDS.

The next morning we had breakfast at the hotel (complimentary), and it was really good!  Then we packed and drove to the capital building.

The event started promptly at nine a.m.  Peggy and I sat very close to the front on the main floor, with a group of four people from Long Island Citizens for Community  Values.
The morning program was very good, they moved from speaker to speaker.  

Then we had an hour and a half break while they showed a movie.  Peggy and I decided to take position papers to our Senator (Robert Ortt)  He was not in his office when we got there.  His secretary was very friendly and showed us his office.   Here I am sitting at his desk.  

We missed the movie which was shown during the 1.5 hour lunch break.  I think the name of it was A YEAR FROM NOW.  It was made by 
Rick Santorum and his wife.  

The KEYNOTE speaker was Rick himself...and he gave a wonderful talk.  
There were activities scheduled for the rest of the afternoon, but Peggy and I had a long drive ahead of us, so we headed out.  We stopped for supper at CRACKER BARREL in Amherst and then headed back to my house.  

It was a wonderful couple of days even though it was very rushed and involved a lot of driving.
