Owens Community College student groups invited their fellow students, as well as area residents, to join in celebrating Inauguration Day with a series of community events Jan. 20.

Owens’ Black Student Union, Student Government and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society groups served as hosts to a patriotic-themed “Inauguration Day Watch Party” in the Center for Fine and Performing Arts Mainstage Theatre.

Attendees had the opportunity to view the day’s Inauguration festivities on a jumbo movie screen. In addition to the Inauguration television free U.S. Constitution pocket booklets were given out.

Following the “Inauguration Day Watch Party” coverage those in attendance had the opportunity to express and share their thoughts about the Inauguration Day celebration during an open-microphone forum.

For more than 200 years, America’s citizens have witnessed the Inauguration Day ceremonies of the President and Vice President of the United States. From the first Inauguration of George Washington in 1789 to last week’s celebration, the 56th quadrennial Presidential Inauguration, the swearing-in ceremony represents both national renewal

and continuity of leadership.
