LOWVILLE The American Legion is asking all Lewis County businesses and nonprofit organizations to join in sponsoring young men to attend American Legions Boys State this summer at SUNY Morrisville. Young men selected for the program will experience operation of local, county and state government.
A donation of $350 is suggested from local businesses or other community-based organizations to help sponsor expenses associated with attending the program.
The training includes city, county and state governments operated by the students elected to various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, chorus and recreational programs.
For more information, call American Legion Post 162 Commander Lee Hinkleman at 376-3344.
