Portales, New Mexico....June 2, 2013

American Legion Auxiliary (ALA in future posts) NM Girls State has begun.  Delegates from all over the beautiful Land of Enchantment  have been swarming to the heart of Roosevelt County this day.  Check in was smooth as butter, and the rooms have been assigned.  Our current crop of Junior Counselors are full of enthusiasm and fun, and have immediately taken the new delegates under their wings.  We had our opening ceremonies this afternoon at 4:00 pm.  Four proud cities, Pine, Cactus, Sage and Spruce really made a noise when they answered roll call.  Our Girls State Governor, Kelsey Montoya, presided over a great meeting.  Off to dinner we went, and then the delegates went off to begin the work of the city.  Campaigning is ongoing for Mayor, Council, and other city offices.  So much information in such a short time.  Signing off for now, keep checking in for upcoming election results and any other events
