Inauguration Day Reception on the Lawn

The inauguration ceremony is over.
The guests are invited to a 
reception on the City Hall Lawn.

Arty and Mabel took a moment to let it sink in
while they waited for guests to gather on the City Hall lawn

Outgoing Mayorz, Murphy & Stanley were the first to arrive

Ruby, Jessie and former Mayoress Madi 
had some words of support for Mabel

The Inaugural Party has made their way 
to the reception area with their dates
Murphy & Ruby, Stanley with Jessie and her brother Casey, Frankie & Abby along with Ernie and Roxy. Madi is visiting with Hazel & Oreo while Princess Leah and Chester find a spot. Christmas and Noodles look great and Jakey is sticking close to newly retired Dory and Mr Bailey

Soon the City Hall Lawn was filled with Blogville friends
