(MINEOLA, NY) –Nassau County Legislator Ellen W. Birnbaum (D-Great Neck) recently invited Scout troops from her district to visit the Nassau County Legislature and learn about how their County government works. During a recent visit, scouts from Cub Scout Pack 201 who are all fifth graders at Center Street School which is part of the Herricks Public Schools, received an audio-visual presentation on the history of Nassau County Government.
Their visit also included a tour of the Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building in Mineola. Legislator Birnbaum hopes this experience allowed the scouts to learn about government first hand and empowered them to become advocates for issues in their communities. She welcomes other scout troops in her district to contact her office at (516) 571-6210 if they are interested in visiting the Legislature.
