FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUGUSTA – With the Second Regular Session of the 128th Legislature just around the corner, Senator Amy Volk (R-Cumberland) would like to once again invite all area students to join her at the State House for a day to serve as a page in the Maine Senate.

As a page, students have the opportunity to participate in a legislative session, delivering messages and distributing documents within the Senate Chamber.

“It is always encouraging to see young people at the State House actually taking part in the legislative process,” Senator Volk said. “They leave Augusta with a better understanding of how state government works and their connection to it. It’s also exciting to know that some of them will one day be legislators, themselves!”

The program, which lasts for one day’s session, is open for students from third grade through high school. The Legislature schedules pages for each session day, which begins on Wednesday, January 3 and will conclude on April 18.

For more information, please contact Senator Volk’s office at 207-287-1505.
