Every year American Legion Auxiliary Thoman-Boothe Unit 338 tries to send two(2) to four(4) girls that have completed their junior year in high school and have at least one more semester of high school remaining. We contact the High Schools about this program, but we would also like for our Legion families to be aware of this opportunity so that they can be sent also. we pay for this program, bus fare and also give them a little spending money. All they have to do is go. i asked that the girl that is interested to come to our meeting in February if possible. I have to turn in all the paper work by March 1, 2012. If you know of someone that would be interested and have good grades have them contact me by February 1, 2012.
