Monthly Archives: August 2017


We meet the second Tuesday of every month. Our present location is Brown’s Brewing Company, 417 River Street, Troy, New York, although our next meeting will be held at

Malta Community Center, 1 Bayberry Drive, Malta New York – special appearance by Larry Sharpe, a prospective New York Gubernatorial Candidate of the Libertarian Party in 2018. Larry is a businessman, management consultant, teacher, and Marine Corp veteran. In my view, a dynamic and motivating speaker that everyone interested in libertarian philosophy and growing the movement should hear.

Our meetings start at 6:30 and formally begin with a reading of the minutes and reports from the Treasurer and Representative to the State Committee followed by other reports on recurring and special activities. These usually take about 30 minutes and are followed by about an hour of discussion about future activities and issues of current interest. Occasionally, we have a presentation that may challenge some of our premises so as to encourage discussion that may increase our understanding of and ability to respond to other viewpoints.

In the future, a brief summary of the minutes of the previous meeting and any special items of the agenda will be posted.
