Welcome 100 new Americans Thursday, June 14
Approximately 100 new American citizens will take the oath of citizenship during Colonial Williamsburg’s Naturalization Ceremony at 4 p.m. Flag Day, Thursday, June 14 in an outdoor ceremony on the grounds of the Colonial Capitol in the Revolutionary City. In case of rain, the program will be held at the Kimball Theatre in Merchants Square.
These new citizens, their families and guests are invited to blog online about their new citizenship at www.iCitizenForum.com. Created by Colonial Williamsburg, the site fosters online discussion about civic responsibility by engaging a diverse community which, guided by the values and principles of the inventors of democracy, participates in the exploration of citizenship issues. The League of Women Voters will be present to register the new citizens to vote.
The public is invited to attend. No ticket or reservations are required.
