UMaine Day at the Legislature, Tuesday, February 26th, is quickly approaching. Since legislators like to see 4-H members from their districts, 4-Hers (age 13 or older) are encouraged to serve as Honorary Pages. The Maine 4-H program has up to 30 slots for Honorary Pages.
What does a page do? Pages hand out information to Representatives or Senators, or place the paper information on their desks. They also hand phone and other messages to Representatives and Senators on the floor.
If you are interested in serving as a page, please contact Debra Kantor in Somerset County at 1-800-287-8957 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will attempt to have pages from different parts of the state. Slots, representing different state senators and representatives, will be filled in the order they are received, but the final deadline is February 8th. If the slot for your legislative district has been filled, your name will be added to a wait list in the order it is received. If you are leaving a message, please be sure to say “I am interested in serving as a 4-H Page at the Legislature on February 26”. Your slot will be reserved if you leave this complete information:
- full name
- mailing address
- phone number
- email address
- name of your school
- name of your 4-H Club
- name of your Maine State Representative
- name of your Maine State Senator
4-H Honorary Pages will be in the Capitol from 8:30am– 3:00pm. A parent or 4-H volunteer provides transportation and chaperoning.
