Boys State Update 1-26-2022

Note: The following email was sent to Second vice commander Frank Pedagno to Sanford H. Calhoun High school counselor Brian Resnick.

Hello Mr. Resnick we hope that you and your family are healthy. I am pleased to let you know that Ray Adams and Deven Kirpalani have accepted the opportunity to attend Boys State. A panel of 3 Post members met these young men and their parents and they have been provided with the instructions to progress their applications. I am sure you will be hearing from them soon. I have asked them to complete the application and all associated paperwork by Feb 28 and will be following up with them in about 2 weeks to ensure success.

Please let me know if you have had the opportunity to discuss the placement of a plaque honoring Americanism honorees. As always, we thank you for your assistance both Devin and Ray will represent Calhoun, the Merrick Community and our Post very well.

 Frank D. Pedagno, Second Vice Commander
