Bandelier to host naturalization ceremony

-A A +A

Citizenship > Event set for Thursday at national monument


July 4 is traditionally the day when Americans celebrate their freedom and independence.  

This year, building on the success of last year’s ceremony, Bandelier National Monument is partnering with the United States Citizenship and Naturalization Services to host a naturalization ceremony. 

Fifteen candidates, after years of fulfilling their requirements, will be taking the oath and becoming the newest citizens of the United States.

Superintendent Jason Lott will be the keynote speaker, along with speeches by Harry Burgess, Los Alamos County Administrator, and a representative from the office of United States Senator Martin Heinrich. 

Eagle Scouts from Troop 129 will parade the colors, and the Rotary Club will provide refreshments.  

Like last year, Atomic City Transit is supporting the event by providing a bus especially for the participants.  The event begins at 11 a.m.  This ceremony is not only for new citizens; the public also is invited.

Catch the free park shuttles at the Visitor Center in White Rock and enjoy a scenic ride to Bandelier.  For more information, call the Bandelier Visitor Center at 672-3861 ext. 517.
