Betz takes youth tour

From Local Sources

The Dubois Rural Electric Cooperative sponsored Garrett Betz of St. Anthony on the Indiana Youth Tour June 7 through 14.

Students participating on the trip visited the Flight 93 Memorial, the Gettysburg Battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian museums, the National Mall memorials, and the National Museum of the Marine Corps; taking a night cruise on the Potomac River; and much more.

They also participated in a youth rally hosted by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and spent a day on Capitol Hill, where they had an opportunity to meet with Indiana’s congressional delegation to ask questions and share their thoughts on a variety of timely issues.

Dubois REC, headquartered in Jasper, serves over 10,000 members in the rural areas of Dubois, Crawford, Martin, Orange, Perry and Pike counties.
