We had a great showing by the American Legion Post 124. In attendance were Bob Gelhar, Financial Officer; Bernie Meuwissen,1st Vice Commander; Louis Haga, Boys State; and Commander Marv Doty.
Louis shared about the Legion’s participation in Boys State, where high schoolers attend to run for political office for a week at the “Boys State.” They learn a lot about government in the process. Our own Dick Schouten, Washington County Commissioner, has served as a judge in the past.
At the conclusion, President Wally Johnston presented a check to the post to help sponsor young people who attend Boys State.
