Editor:

Recently the American Legion Auxiliary Capitol Unit 4 held their annual Girls State Tea at the Governors Mansion. Proceeds from the Tea benefit Girls State delegates from Carson and Douglas high schools. Delegates were interviewed and selected based on academics and leadership qualities both in school and in our 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. We would like to thank our generous donors and supporters who helped make this event successful: ALSCO, Bed Bath and Beyond, Cactus Jacks/Jackpot Crossing, C-A-L Ranch Stores, Carson Valley Beauty Supply, Carson Valley Community Theatre, Carson Valley Inn, Casino Fandango, Comstock Seed, Downtown 111, Due Sorella, El Charro Avitia, Governor's Mansion and staff, Horseshoe Club, Ironwood Cinemas, Killer Salsa, Loretta Hetman, Minden Fortnightly Club, Minden Meat And Deli, Raley's, Rapunzel's, Red's Old 395, Reno Aces, Silver Strike Lanes, Slot World, Tahoe Ridge Winery and Bistro, The J.T.
