Montgomery County Republican High School Students Headed to Annapolis on President’s Day – February 20, 2017
By Sharon L. Cohen
Plans for the 2017 Montgomery County (MoCo) Republican High School Student Day in Annapolis are all set.
The event is scheduled for Monday, February 20th, 2017 – President’s Day.
Since this is a Federal holiday, students won’t have to miss school to participate.
RSVP by 2/13/2017 to take part in this important activity.
All County Republican High School student club members are welcome, but space is limited. The permission/RSVP form is due by 5:00 pm, Monday, February 13th. As noted on the form, students are responsible for their own transportation to Annapolis. Each student must bring a government-issued photo ID to enter the State Capitol Bldg. Finally, each student must bring some spending money ($10.00) for a drink or snack. Lunch will be provided and there is no charge for this event.
If students, club sponsors/leaders or parents have questions; please email me at [email protected].
President’s Day 2015 was the first County Republican High School Day in Annapolis following the inauguration Governor Larry Hogan. This year will be our third annual trip to Annapolis.
This is a great opportunity for Republican high school students from across the county to meet each other in person, especially since many schools have GOP clubs or TAR (Teenage Republican) organizations at their schools. In fact, thanks to the efforts of several club leaders, the MCGOP has a new affiliate the: MCTARS – Montgomery County Federation of Teenage Republicans https://www.facebook.com/groups/tarsmontgomery
While in Annapolis we’ll meet with Republican state legislators, tour the state Capitol, and sit in on a hearing. The current and immediate past chairmen of the Maryland Republican Party – Dirk Haire and Diana Waterman – will also join us. AND, we’ll meet with the Governor!
Please pass this along and make sure it gets to any Republican high school students in the county that may be interested. It’s so important to engage this age group.
