Scouting Report to the State

I had an absolutely amazing day at the Minnesota state capital!  I got to attend the Scouting Report to the State as a representative of Gamehaven Council.  I was so excited to go and to meet the other Scouts who were part of this event.

We met in the morning at the Northstar Council in St. Paul and practiced what we would say when we met the officials at the capital.  In the morning, we met Senator Ted Lillie on the Senate floor and Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch.  After that it was time to meet Governor Dayton and I was very nervous.  I did great and got to relax and enjoy the rest of the day afterwards.

After that we got to have lunch in the Department of Transportation building.  From there, we met Speaker of the House Kurt Zellers.  He was really cool and let me mess with his stuff.  After meeting him, our group went on a tour of the capital (which didn’t allow us the cool entry into things like we got when meeting the officials!).

After the tour we went to the Minnesota Supreme Court and met Chief Justice Lorie Gildea.  I even got to bang her gavel!  Our last stop of the day was to stop in to see Secretary of State Mark Ritchie.  He let us make a MN state seal.

Thank you Gamehaven Council for selecting me to attend this event and have this incredible experience.
