Recently, the American Legion Auxiliary Capitol Unit 4 held its annual Girls State Tea at the Governor’s Mansion. Proceeds from the tea benefit Girls State delegates from Carson, Douglas, Incline and Sierra Lutheran high schools. Delegates were interviewed and selected based on academics and leadership qualities in school and in local communities. Girls State is an Americanism study program, and delegates are given information and gain exposure in the affairs of government that will increase their interest and usefulness as citizens.

American Legion Auxiliary Capitol Unit 4 would like to thank the generous donors and supporters who helped make the event successful: ALSCO, Bed Bath and Beyond, Carson Valley Community Theatre, Carson Valley Inn, Comstock Seed, Costco, El Charro Avitia, Governor’s Mansion and Staff, Ironwood Cinemas, Killer Salsa, Kristopher’s Ristorante, Michele Roach/Michael Hohl, Minden Fortnightly, Reno Aces, Slot World, Starbucks/Minden, the J.T. Basque Bar, the Orchard House, the Pink House, Trader Joe’s and Walmart #1648.
