President’s Message:
I hope everyone is having a beautiful start to summer! As a reminder we are postponing fieldwork and tours until we have received notification from NYSAA that our new insurance policy is in place and we will resume those activities ASAP! Until then I encourage you all to get out and enjoy this great weather by visiting some of our many historical sites, the summer is a great time to have fun learning! This month is also our last meeting of the season as there are no meetings in July and August. Please note our annual picnic is at a new location this year! It is a beautiful park and we are very excited to try somewhere new! I hope to see everyone at the meeting on the 19th and look forward to spending a fun afternoon at the picnic! 
June 19th meeting:
Dave Johnson will discuss the latest developments in regard to his research in the Southwestern and Northeastern states. This program will include petroglyphs and stone features which could be associated with Paleo sites.
