Yesterday, Senator Rob Ortt presented New York State education funds to five local libraries. This specific funding is designated for schools, museums, and libraries and can be used toward the addition or continuation of certain educational programs. Some of the programs that will be funded with this aid include the hiring of additional mental health counselors, the purchasing of a mobile library to deliver books around the community, and the creation of a STEM program. Among the recipients was our beloved Royalton-Hartland Community Library which received $5,000 in funding.

Yesterday, talk show host Bob Lonsberry, who has shows on Rochester's WHAM and Syracuse's WSYR, was at the New York State Fair doing live remotes for WSYR. He went through the dairy barn where he came across Emory Seefeldt and his mom Amy who hail from Gasport View Dairy. Bob conducted an awesome interview with them.
You can listen to the 11-minute interview on WSYR's podcast. It begins at the 18:00 mark on the "Lonsberry at the Fair: Day 7" podcast for the 4:00 PM hour. Amy and Emory (and Bob Lonsberry for that matter) are great spokespersons for dairy. Emory also had a great quote about farming and the life lessons it gives.
