February 22, 2009 – Claire to Girls State

Claire was selected for another honor this week – “Girls State” sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary.┬á The best description I’ve got is the following from the acceptance letter.

Congratulations on being selected to attend Iowa Girls State. You are joining an outstanding group of young women from across the State of Iowa dating back to 1946. During this week you will experience government coming alive through a hands-on process. It will be a special week in which you will make many new friends while learning that you can do things you never thought you could do!

If the week deals with government and meeting new people, Claire will have a great time. The event will be held in Ames in June.
