Local Youth Visit State Capitol and Meet With Legislators

Orange and Madison County 4-H members and volunteers traveled to Richmond today to visit the State Capitol.  While there, the group of 57 met with Senator Edd Houck and Delegates Ed Scott and Rob Bell to share their 4-H story.  Participants learned how a bill becomes a law and how legislators work to represent their constituents in the General Assembly.  The trip included a tour of the Governor’s Mansion, seating and recognition in the Senate Gallery, and partial tours of the State Capitol building.  Clubs represented on this trip include Anglers, Livestock, Dairy, Goat, Home Ec, Technology on Wheels, and Livestock Cloverbud and Madison Centaurs and Adventure Club. 

Participants are encouraged to share photos with Kaci or Kaila for posting on the web.
