Good Afternoon from Girls Nation!

Well, it’s Saturday and we are all ready for the Senators to arrive. The first bus got to the 4H center around 12:30. It is hot and muggy in DC but I’m sure the girls won’t mind. The Public Relations staff has been working hard to assure that pictures and postings are available on the ALA website, Facebook, and blogspot. So, please, check us out all week.

We just unpacked a box of over 110 poppy corsages from the Awareness Assembly. They are so lovely, we decided to give each Senator a poppy corsage at Registration and have them wear the corsages this evening during the opening convocation. We’ll take lots of pictures and post them on all the social networking sites. Thank you to all the units and departments for these beautiful corsages.

Our government staff has been very busy. All the bills have been reviewed and numbered and everything is in place for tomorrows Senate Committee meetings.

They’re predicting sunshine for tomorrow for the wreath-laying and Ecumenical Service at Arlington Cemetery. This is such a beautiful and moving ceremony and one that is always a highlight of the week. Again, pictures should be available on the website and Facebook by Monday.

That’s it for now. More coming tonight.

  1. Good luck this week, Janet. I'm sure you won't need it as you have surrounded yourself with great staff and wonderful volunteers. Have a great time....wish I were there, Peggy
