The last day (Friday this year) of New York Boys’ State is a hectic one. There are many final activities, and we hope that parents, families, and friends will join us. We are located on the campus of Morrisville State College. We are doing things a little different this year. All Boy’s will be departing on Friday, so please bring a little patience if you come for the events.
The Parade is one of the highlights of the day. The Boys’ will be assembled on the Morrisville State College stadium field for a ceremony at 2:30 PM that will culminate in a pass in review. In case of inclement weather the event will be held in the Rec Hall. All are welcome to attend. Immediately following the Parade the Boys’ will march to the flag pole and assemble for the Retreat Ceremony, where the flag will be lowered for the day by a contingent of Marines. Once this ceremony is over your Boys will move to the Rec Hall for final assembly.
The Evening Assembly
All Boys are expected to attend the Assembly. Awards, Recognitions, a speech from the Boys State Governor, and a rousing rendition of the Alma Mater are some of the highlight. It’s a memorable event. At the conclusion of the ceremony Boys who have checked out can depart. ALL BOYS WHO ARE DEPARTING WITH PARENTS MUST CHECK OUT. CHECKOUT THIS YEAR WILL BE HELD IN THE REC CENTER.
- All Boys must have their credential card scanned before departure
- To leave with someone other than a parent the driver must show a photo ID and a notarized note from the parents naming the person the Boys State Citizen may ride with.
Accountability at Boys State is crucial. Please be patient with us as you depart.
