At the regularly scheduled meeting of American Legion Post 85, Luke Holtorf, a senior at Perry High School, was the special guest. Holtorf made a presentation and shared his experiences at the week-long American Legion Boys State retreat held at Camp Dodge in Johnston. He represented American Legion Post 85, of Perry, at the annual event.


Studies in local, county and state government were just a few of the offerings presented. Guest speakers representing local and state law enforcement were also present. Campaigning and elections of local and state officials were made with Holtorf being elected mayor.


Holtorf, in his presentation, went on to add that the group of young men from all over the state were kept busy from morning to night with various activities, including various sporting events.


American Legion Post 85, with the assistance of counsel from Perry High School, interviews and sponsors a young man every year to this event.
