Denham Leads Tours of U.S. Capitol for Modesto and Turlock School Groups
WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) took two groups of 10th district students on tours of the U.S. Capitol on Friday, October 4, 2013 to ensure that the children were able to see the Capitol building despite government shutdown.
A small group of eighth graders from Vanguard Middle School in Modesto and a group of about thirty eighth graders from Turlock Christian School toured the U.S. Capitol building with Rep. Denham, viewing the Crypt, the Capitol Rotunda and Statuary Hall.
“The opportunity to meet with these two groups of bright students was an honor,” said Rep. Denham. “Shutdown shouldn’t prevent these kids from experiencing the Capitol building, and while many of the museums and DC landmarks are currently closed, I and my staff remain committed to helping visitors to Washington in any way we can.”
Additional photos from his tours with the two groups are available on Rep. Denham’s Facebook page. Visitors to Washington interested in booking a tour through Rep. Denham’s office can call at 202-225-4540 or request a tour through his website.
