The Inauguration: The day of…

Julie Hall, Burnett Thompson, Eric Wheeler, Marshall KeysAfter the ‘hottest ticket’ party, it was off to the home of one of my colleagues where I slept for about two hours.  We were 16 blocks from Union Station, where we performed at 10:00 a.m. on Jan. 20.  This was a group of Maritime unions, Seafarers, various pipefitters, Firefighters, and other hardy souls.  It was a very emotional crowd, and we felt like we were in the thick of it, albeit a half-mile from ground zero.  We were blessed with a performance by  Beau Williams of Houston, who sang the Star Spangled Banner to kick things off.  I have included several photos of my colleagues and the guests at Union Station.  These photos were taken around the time of the actual ceremony at noon.  Thanks to Shera Thompson (see photo) for putting us all together.
