Below is a note sent by Congressman Welch on 1/11/13 to Vermonters passing along an invitation the VT State Society Inaugural Reception.
After a high-stakes election season, we are just a few weeks away from President Obama’s second inauguration. I expect many Vermonters will be in Washington DC to celebrate. If you are one of those Vermonters, I wanted to make sure you knew about the Vermont State Society Inaugural Reception on Sunday, January 20, 2013, 8pm – 11pm.
The Vermont State Society is a social organization made up of Washington area residents who have a strong affinity for Vermont. The Vermont State Society hosted its first-ever Presidential Inauguration reception in 2009 with nearly 600 Vermonters and friends of Vermont in attendance. The 2013 event will again showcase Vermont’s fantastic food, drink, music and people. This is the only event during the inauguration festivities dedicated to our state and I am pleased to support this celebratory event.
The reception will be a great way for Vermonters to connect and celebrate the inauguration. It will take place at 101 Constitution Avenue NW, a venue adjacent to the Capitol where you can enjoy a close-up view of the swearing-in stage. Tickets and additional information are available on the Vermont State Society website at www.vtss.org.
Please do not hesitate to stop by my new office while you are in DC. Hope to see you there!
Congressman Peter Welch
