STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX (February 8, 2013) – On Saturday morning, more than 200 Arizona Boy Scouts from across the state will participate in the annual Scout Day at the Capitol.  The event, organized by House Majority Leader David Gowan (R-Dist 14) and Senator Al Melvin (R-Dist. 11), will provide a unique learning experience and a chance to take part in a meaningful service project. Scouts will participate in a cleanup effort to polish and maintain the many war memorials that outline the Capitol. They will also be provided with learning opportunities including a guided tour of the Old Capitol Complex by Members of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Scout Day at the Capitol is a special opportunity for Boy Scouts to engage in the political process, take part in community service and learn about the many responsibilities of Arizona public servants. At the conclusion, Scouts will take part in an adventurous scavenger hunt filled with great food and fun.

Volunteers from Order of the Arrow, Capitol Staff and various Scout Leaders will be on hand to assist with the activities. The event will run from 8 AM to 12:30 PM.
