PLATTSBURGH - Volunteers from the Joint Council for Economic Opportunities for Clinton and Franklin Counties and the Interfaith Food Shelf plan to collect food and money Tuesday, Jan. 20. They will be on-hand collecting donations from people willing to give at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh's public viewing of the inaugural swearing-in ceremony to be held in Room 200 of Yokum Hall at 11:30 a.m.
The effort is in response to President-elect Barack Obama's call for a Day of Service leading up to the inauguration.
The viewing of the inauguration is free and open to all community members. Attendees are welcome to bring a bag lunch to the program. In addition, some light refreshments will be available.
An informal discussion will follow the program. Faculty from a variety of departments will be on-hand to add to the conversation.
Yokum Hall is located off Broad Street, between the intersections of Beekman and Draper streets. University Police will not ticket members of the community who park in the college lots during this event.
