Some of Alexandria’s younger residents will celebrate the presidential inauguration with a day of service.
Several city offices along with Alexandria City Public Schools, the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority and Volunteer Alexandria have organized a Jan. 19 event designed to engage youth in creating a 30-page storybook, which will then be signed by the nation's first family.
The day of service is an effort to teach Alexandria’s children the importance of giving back.
The events will run from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Nannie J. Lee Recreation Center, Charles Barrett Recreation Center and the T.C. Williams satellite office at Landmark Mall.
Activities include games, reading, dancing, discussing “service,” coloring and making a storyboard.
