Please be advised that Girl Scout Day at the Capitol has been postponed to the Fall. More details will follow.


WAAT will be providing volunteers for this great event! Last year, more than 1,200 girls attended Girl Scout Day at the Capitol to learn about how our government works and the legislative process. (Here's the WIBW coverage.) They expect another big turn out for the event this year. They would love to have women attorneys at the event for the girls to meet and interact with at the various activity centers.


Please email Laura Nordgren as soon as possible if you'd like to volunteer.
