Democrats Abroad invites you to participate in watching and celebrating President Obama's second inaugural celebration.

Even if you aren't a U.S. citizen or a Democrat, do come to Paradise Community Center on Monday, January 21 at 10:30 am to share a part of history on Inauguration Day. We especially encourage our Mexican and Canadian friends to come.

The theme for the inauguration is Faith in America’s Future and is preceded on Saturday, January 19, by National Service Day, a new tradition introduced at the 2009 inauguration where Americans across the country are asked to give back to our communities however we can.

For National Service Day, our local Democrats Abroad leadership group recommends the following organizations specifically, if you want to get involved:

Puerto Vallarta Garden Club. On Saturday, the garden club, an organization actively working on the beautification of Puerto Vallarta and the launch of the May, 2013 Bougainvillea Festival, is having a work party to weed and prune planter boxes. Meet at 10:30 at the corner of Olas Altas and Basilio Badillo. Read related story.
Pasitos de Luz. An art benefit is being held for Pasitos de Luz Wednesday, January 16, 4:00 - 7:00 pm at Casa De Las Flores, Calle Amapas 359, 100 peso donation.  Pasitos helps disabled children achieve their rehabilitation and basic needs. Read related story.
