On Wednesday, April 9th, seniors in Tama County attended the 60th annual Tama County Government Day. Upon arriving in Toledo, students gathered for a welcome with a voting ballot. Students voted on controversial surveys. Next they attended a flag folding demonstration. The kids learned what each fold represents. From there, students toured Tama County Courthouse-Courtroom, Tama County Administration Building, Tama County Museum, Tama County Jail, Conservation Department-Extension, and Health Services/Sanitarian-Nurses Office South Annex. On their tour they mixed with the other schools into groups of 12. In the courtroom they got to talk to a judge. At the museum the students viewed war memorabilia and researched ancestors in the Tama County area. The genealogy machine contained government documents used to track names. Presentations were given by three county officers about taxation funds, roads, and the wind energy effect on Tama County. Judge Brent Appel spoke about the Iowa Supreme Court system. Students concluded the day by reviewing voting results.
