Sen. Obama at Plymouth State University on Tuesday…

Posted by aaronjmarquez on October 3, 2007

According to a Facebook message from a field staffer, U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) will host an event at Plymouth State University on the evening of Tuesday, October 9th.

I just wanted you to be one of the first to know, but Obama will be at Plymouth State on Tuesday evening.  More details to follow… I’ll keep in touch. 

For those who don’t know, I was involved in the NH Draft Obama Movement this winter and as Student Body President at Plymouth State University (PSU) in 2003, I helped organize Presidential candidate visits to campus… so this is a very special event for me personally. 

Additionally, this poises to be a significant event for the National Service Movement.  Both the Senator and Mrs. Obama signed the ServeNext Presidential Pledge over Labor Day weekend at a rally in Manchester.  PSU took the lead for the National Service community in New Hampshire when they began offering renewable $2500 scholarships for AmeriCorps Alums attending the institution beginning this fall. 

So get ready – ServeNext will be out in full force!  If you plan to attend, be sure to be in touch so we can coordinate…

    Agree totally with the concept of National Service, however, I think it should be compulsury for young women and men between 18-26 and for two years … without exception.

    Some candidates have mentioned “incentivizing.” A modest stipend should be paid while serving but there can be some terminal $$ for educational opportunities.

    Look forward to your comments. Cheers, Patps
