Amenia

AMENIA — The Amenia Town Board welcomed Genevieve Trigg to its team at the end of August as the new town attorney.

Trigg said she knew she wanted to be a lawyer at a young age and applied herself to her studies to reach that goal. While she was originally interested in practicing criminal law, she developed a passion for environmental law after interning at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) during her first summer at Albany Law School. From that point on, she maintained her focus on environmental science throughout law school.

The sound of music …

The Smithfield Presbyterian Church was alive with organ music last Saturday, Sept. 9, thanks to a recital by New York Philharmonic organist Kent Tritle. Tritle’s performance included works by J.S. Bach, Felix Mendelssohn and Alexandre Guilmant on the church’s 1893 Johnson and Son tracker organ. Since the recital was organized to benefit the Oratorio Society of New York, a suggested donation of $20 was asked at the door. Following the performance, spectators were invited to enjoy a reception in the church.
