A historic event took place Jan. 20 as America’s first African-American president was sworn in.
People from all over the country flocked to Washington, D.C. for the event, even some local folks from right here in Gadsden County.
If you went to the inauguration, we’d like to hear from you. We’d like to include your memories and commentary in an upcoming edition of the Times. We’d also like to publish some of your photos in both our print and online editions.
There were also local events celebrating President-elect Barack Obama’s swearing-in. If you attended these, we’d love to hear from you and publish your photos as well.
We’ll publish some of the photos and commentary in our print edition, but the majority of it will be published at www.gadcotimes.com. This is so that those who didn’t attend any events, but still witnessed it via some form of media, can go online and leave their commentary and memories as well.
We’ll also be creating a slide show of photos we receive.
