The public is invited to witness approximately 35 applicants celebrate a milestone in their lives by becoming U.S. citizens. The ceremony will be on September 22 at 1:00 pm on the parade ground.

The Honorable J. Thomas Martin, Chief U.S. District Court Judge, will preside over the ceremony, which will also feature music from the Larned High School Band, a welcome from Larned Mayor William Nusser, and an address by Great Bend immigration attorney Robert Feldt. A Kansas National Guard detail will present the colors.

There will be a reception in the Quartermaster Warehouse after the ceremony to congratulate the new citizens. In keeping with the patriotic nature of the event, the warehouse will be decorated with typical 19th century patriotic decorations, including red, white and blue bunting and a large 36 star flag on display.
