Senator Stephen Meredith: Invites Military Families to Participate in Military Kids Day
Military Kids Day, the annual event hosted at the Kentucky State Capitol, is scheduled to return on Tuesday, February 27. Senator Stephen Meredith, R-Leitchfield and other lawmakers encourage families and children in their districts to participate.
Initiated by state Sen. Jimmy Higdon at the request of a military family living in his district, Military Kids Day is an annual event that allows military children to participate in the legislative process. Hosted by the Veterans, Military Affairs, and Public Protection Committee, children are invited to go on a Capitol tour, page for their respective legislator, participate in a Capitol scavenger hunt and attend committee meetings related to military issues.
The Kentucky State House of Representatives will lead this year’s effort, but Senator Meredith and the Senate Chamber will welcome military kids for the day’s floor proceedings.
“As a lawmaker, I am deeply committed to honoring the sacrifices of our military families," said Meredith. "Military Kids Day is a meaningful occasion to recognize the resilience and courage of these children who stand alongside their loved ones in service to our nation. I extend a warm invitation to families in my district to join us at the Kentucky State Capitol for a day of appreciation and engagement in state government.”
Military Kids Day will begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 27, at the Kentucky State Capitol.
