Invitations to the Inauguration

I, and several others from the Syracuse area are busilly getting ready to go to Washington for the Inauguration this coming Tuesday. I will use this blog to post ocassional items from the inauguration weekend.

Before I go, I thought I would share the actual invitations to the swearing-in ceremony and the inaugural ball I will be attending. In addition to getting a coveted ticked to the swearing in ceremony, I was also fortunate enough to get a ticket to the "Neighborhood Ball," which will be the featured ball of the night (televised live on ABC), and the one at which the new President and First Lady dance their first dance of the evening.

The formal invitation, but not the actual ticket to get in:



The actual ticket that I will use to get in to the "purple standing area," which is a very good and hard-to-get ticket:



A "Silver Ticket," which will go to one of our many faithful volunteers. This is also very hard to get, but will be further away, on the other side of the reflecting pool. Over a million people are expected to watch from even beyond this point in the non-ticket length of the National Mall, where Jumbo screens will be set up:
