Government Class' Finale

A really amazing field trip to City Hall, guided by the City clerk (and former mayor) that included a chance to see a fire truck close up (and the aerial fully extended), a cherry picker truck, a sewage truck (with auto camera for locating blockages), and a backhoe. Then we went inside, met the Mayor, and conducted a mock city council session with him presiding. K had been elected sheriff and so is shown at the table. We then got to tour the police station, including dispatch and jail. Lots learned by adults and kids!
