Lancaster House Delegation to Host Homeschoolers Civics Day
Event to feature Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett
The Republican House Delegation in Lancaster County will host Civics Day for homeschooled students in October.
The event, scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 11, is an opportunity for students to learn about state and local government in Pennsylvania. Civics Day will be held at the Calvary Church, located at 1051 Landis Valley Road in Lancaster, and registration will begin at 8:15 a.m.
Along with featuring Attorney General Tom Corbett as the special guest speaker, the event will also include a mock legislature, an appearance by “President James Buchanan” and experts from various state agencies. There will also be activities tailored to students in each grade. This event, considered an excellent learning experience for children, has attracted hundreds of homeschooled students in past years, so those interested in participating should register early.
Students from third to 12th grades are asked to register by Sept. 21. Registration forms can be obtained by contacting the Denver office of Rep. Tom Creighton (R-Denver/Manheim) at 1-800-979-0812, or by accessing any of the following Web sites:
The forms, along with the $3 per child registration fee, should be returned to Rep. Tom Creighton, Attn: Civics Day Registration, 323 Main Street, Denver, PA 17517. This registration fee will help to offset the costs for facility rental and other general event expenses.
The Lancaster Republican House Delegation is comprised of Reps. John Bear (R-Lititz), Scott Boyd (R-Lampeter), Tom Creighton, Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom), Gordon Denlinger (R-Ephrata), Dave Hickernell (R-Elizabethtown) and Katie True (R-East Hempfield).
