The Harmony American Legion Auxiliary is proud to announce that Nashia Soland has been chosen to represent Harmony at the 64th annual Girls State program to be held June 13-19, 2010, at Bethel College in St. Paul. Soland is the daughter of LuVerne and Carol Soland of Preston and is currently a junior at Fillmore Central High.

The purposes of the Girls State program are to provide citizenship training for girls of high school age; to afford them an opportunity to live together as self-governing citizens; to inform them about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American citizenship, in order that they may understand and participate in the functioning of their government; and to help them grasp the meaning of some of the responsibilities which they must assume when they become adults.

The entire Girls State program is a non-political, non-partisan, non-sectarian attempt to instill in these potential leaders a love of God and country. They practice good citizenship, Americanism and the duties that go along with city, county and state officials.

The local auxiliary has sponsored girls for this program throughout its history.
