AMBOY - An invitation has been extended to all girls in the junior class at Amboy High School to attend Illini Girl's State this year, which is again sponsored by the Amboy American Legion Auxiliary. In order to qualify, each girl must have at least a C average and be willing to participate in the activities offered.
A meeting was held at the high school on March 20 during which Riley Roberts, Rachel Vaessen and Natalie Rood told the AHS junior girls about their experiences during last year's session. Each girl was given an application at that time; extra applications may be obtained in the school office. Completed applications must be returned to Principal Gruber's office. The students attending Illini Girl's State will leave on Sunday, June 16 and return on Saturday, June 22. Expenses and transportation will be provided for the girls.
