EVENT: You are Invited - Dan Forest Swearing-In Celebration

You are Invited

Dan Forest Swearing-In Celebration

Dan will be ceremonially sworn-in as North Carolina’s next Lt. Governor on January 12, 2013, and you are invited to attend. Please join Dan, Governor-Elect Pat McCrory and the Council of State members as they are sworn in to office on the Capitol Grounds in Raleigh at 11:00am on January 12th.

Immediately following the Ceremony is The Inaugural Parade. The Parade will begin at 12:30. We will also hold an Old Fashioned Pig Pickin’ Celebration for The Dan Forest Campaign Volunteers and Supporters from 12:30pm till 4:00pm. The Pig Pickin’ will be on the grounds of the Lt. Governor’s Office (The Hawkins-Hartness House) located at 310 N. Blount Street in Downtown Raleigh. The Lt. Governor’s Office is just a short walk from the Capitol. Dan and Alice will be attending this event immediately after the conclusion of the parade.

Our Pig Pickin’ is casual, family friendly and Free of Charge, BUT we do need you to RSVP for the event so we can make sure we have enough food for everyone. If you plan on attending, please email Alice Forest at alice@danforest.com

The oath taking celebration is a culmination of a week's worth of Inaugural events that you are also invited to attend. I have outlined those activities below and the ticket prices for each.
