WILMINGTON — Mary Conger of American Legion Ladies Auxiliary Unit 49 spoke about the Buckeye Girls State program at the Kiwanis Club meeting on Feb. 7.

Buckeye Girls State is about young women in their junior year of high school learning about leadership and the opportunity of experiencing our democratic form of government by assuming the roles of city and state officials or legislators. Through these experiences, young women learn of the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship which distinguishes our form of city, county and state government.

Also, the club recognized Kiwanian Fred Matthews with the Kiwanis Legion of Honor Award for his 40 years of Kiwanis Service.
