Here at Collington, quite a lot of energy is going into getting ready for the January 21 March.
There is going to be a system of shuttle drivers to get people to and from the Metro, backed up by a telecommunication system.
The Collingtonian is getting ready to collect impressions and photos.
A videographer grandson plans to make a video of residents’ reactions. (To volunteer contract resident Doris Walsh)
There is a determined (if surely unnecessary) effort to ensure the presence of men.
There will be a sign-making party earlier in the week.
Lots of people are reporting friends coming from out of town to stay with them for the event.
There is a hat knitting team (rather anarchisticaly organized) bringing together yarn, knitters and the needed patterns. Here is a photo of a hat.

More planning details are available on our internal list. Stay tuned for a fuller report.
By the way, I would be very happy to report any similar plans that those who wish to celebrate the day of the inauguration itself might be developing. So far I have not heard any plans, so if there are any, do get in touch.
