On Wednesday, October 25, 2017 the American Legion Auxiliary honored three girls who were sponsored to American Legion Girls State held in San Diego this past June. The American Legion Auxiliary Department of California is a proud sponsor and administrator of the California Girls State program. Nearly 300 locally based units work all year to raise money in order to provide scholarships to students to attend California Girls State. Local units recruit from area high schools and select young women who are just completing their Junior year of high school to attend the week-long, summer session.
