Local Obama parties gear up

Newton County Senior Services will host an inauguration celebration beginning at 10:30 a.m. today at Turner Lake Complex banquet room.

Attendees can view the ceremony on a big screen TV and enjoy a performance by the Senior Services line dancers, who will dance the "Obama hustle."

A lunch of chili and pizza will be served at a cost of $3.50 per person.

"The doors are open to all those who would like to come," said Freda Reed, activities coordinator for the Senior Center.

The celebration will last "until everyone gets tired," she said.
