Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey also spoke. Elementary students made colorful thank-you notes that decorated the jury room walls. Jurors were offered food (provided in part by YLD), restaurant discounts, museum admission and commemorative gifts in appreciation of their service.
The committee also organized a high school speech competition on the topic of the importance of juries, with a $250 cash prize. The Young Lawyers Division judged the competition.
