Since there is not yet much info out there, I thought this invite from Obama to ALL should get us started on this thread. Please post new info as you get them.



xxxxx —

Because of you, I’ll be taking the oath of office again on January 21st.

I’d like you to be part of this historic moment — whether that’s in Washington, D.C., or wherever you call home.

As we make plans, we want to make sure the people who made this inauguration possible are the first to know what’s happening.

I’m honored each and every day to be your president, and I will never forget how I got here.

I’m so grateful for everything you’ve done.

Let’s also remember why we’re here: we’ve got more work to do. And we’re going to begin this next chapter in the American story together.

“From a sing-a-long in a Washington, D.C. Metro station to watching history unfold with young daughters, folks from across the country have written in to share their favorite memories from the 2009 inauguration. Check out a few of these stories, then share your own.

“On my way to the inauguration, I changed trains at a completely packed and jubilant Metro station. A single voice started singing ‘God Bless America,’ and by the first line, the entire station full of people had joined in the most beautiful and soulful rendition I’ve ever heard or participated in! There were no dry eyes in the station!”

  1. Mama Sarah Wishes Obama ‘Courage’ in Remarks to Inauguration Event

    Sarah Obama, the step-grandmother of Barack Obama, told Kenyans gathered for an inaugural dinner in Washington on Friday that she wishes the US president “wisdom, good health and, very importantly, courage.”

    “I pray for him every single day,” Mama Sarah said from Kogelo via a phone link to the event in the US capital city.

    “He was re-elected because the American people know that he cares for America, and that it was God’s wish that he continue to serve America.”

    She also gave her greetings to the 150 Kenyans attending the event as well as to all the American people.

    Ambassador Elkanah Odembo, who organised the $100-a-plate dinner, also addressed those celebrating the start of Mr Obama’s second term.

    “Tonight,” he declared, “we also celebrate the strong and historic relationship between the United States and Kenya based upon our shared values of equality, freedom, democracy and the rule-of-law.

    “In President Obama’s second term,” the ambassador said, “we look forward to forging an even deeper relationship between the U.S. and Kenya, as well as the entire African continent.”

    Ambassador Odembo is scheduled to attend the official inaugural events taking place in Washington on Monday.


  2. Meanwhile:

    Unicyclists come to D.C.


    When the inaugural parade makes its way down Pennsylvania Avenue in a few short weeks, audiences in Washington, D.C. and across the country will be treated to a unique sight: 40 children riding 6-foot-tall unicycles.

    The Gym Dandies Children’s Circus, hailing from Scarborough, Maine, will be making their first appearance in an inaugural parade. Director Jonathan Cahill, a local physical education teacher, formed the group after he introduced juggling in his classes. Since then, the Dandies have had over 3,500 members and performed in numerous parades, festivals, and community events.

    While the Dandies are no strangers to performance, the announcement of their inaugural parade selection came with added excitement, for both the kids and Cahill:

    “The kids were incredibly excited when we got the news. We’ve been in a lot of parades, even the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but nothing compares to this—it’s like the Olympics of parades! In looking at the list of the other participants, we couldn’t be in better company. It’s an honor for us to be part of this, and we couldn’t be more excited.”

    While the Dandies range in age from 8 to 18 years old, they are all well aware of this historic opportunity—and excited to be part of the celebration of President Obama’s second term:

    “This is something that they’ll tell their grandchildren about. To say that they rode a 6-foot unicycle with 40 other children down Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the President of the United States—how special is that?”
