Every year Post 84 sponsors a number of young men and women from Henrico and the greater Richmond area to Virginia Boys and Girls State. The October post meeting is devoted to honoring them and thanking their parents at a recognition banquet.
Boys and Girls State are among the most respected educational programs of government instruction for high school students. Every participant becomes a part of the operation of thei local, county and state government.
At Boys and Girls State, participants are exposed to the rights and privileges, the duties and the responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective and practical with city, county and state governments operated by the students elected to the various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, chorus and recreational programs.
