January 20, 2009
On Jan. 20, Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States. The Presidential Inaugural Committee's website, pic2009.org, provides a behind the scenes look and a text messaging program for both people attending the event, as well as people at home.
“This inauguration signifies change. Every four years we go through this but at the same time it’s invigorating and uplifting that we have something to look forward to and we’re going to be redefining our nation in the next four years.”
Even if you can't join the million-plus people planning to be in Washington, D.C. for Barack Obama's inauguration today, you can watch it on TV at the Ramskeller.
ASAP presents an inauguration-watching party on Tuesday, Jan. 20, starting at 9:30 a.m. Free bagels and coffee.
The president will be hosting the first-ever Neighborhood Ball attended by the nation. On the Presidential Inauguration Committee website, you can find Neighborhood Balls being hosted in your area, or sign up to host one yourself.
Also, check out the video message from President-elect Obama, inviting your participation and involvement.
