When it was announced last month that President Obama was coming to town for the Points of Light award ceremony at the George Bush Library, organizers said those wanting to go would be able to get tickets.
But, this weekend organizers let it be known that only a chosen few will be allowed to see the President at next Friday's event. Instead of tickets, organizers now say those in attendance will be hand picked.
Instead of the event being held at the George Bush Library, Rudder Theater on the Texas A&M Campus is now where the event will be held. The exact time of the event hasn't been announced although it was orginally scheduled from 4-to 5:30pm Friday October 16th.
The event will honor the enormous advances of the service movement that started 20 years ago under the leadership of President George H.W. Bush and will bring together national and local civic leaders, Daily Point of Light Award winners, HandsOn Network affiliates, young people and corporate and philanthropic leaders. The forum is designed to engage the nation in dialogue about the role of service in our communities and in sharing innovative ideas about service as a solution to some of our most pressing issues.
