Three former presidents will join President Obama Friday, September 12, 2014, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of AmeriCorps.
President Obama will address AmeriCorps members on the South Lawn of the White House, where he will be joined by President Bill Clinton. Obama's speech will be streamed to ceremonies around the country. AmeriCorps members will be taking a pledge to serve the organization at the ceremonies.
President George W. Bush and Laura Bush will also appear in a video that will be shown at more than 80 pledge ceremonies from New Hampshire to Guam. President George H.W. Bush will hold a pledge ceremony at his home in Kennebunkport, Me.
Clinton signed the National Community Service Trust Act, which created AmeriCorps, back in 1993.

Don't forget - We are collecting old suitcases for youth! The suitcases will be painted by local artists and then they will be given to foster youth through local CASA organizations for when they transition out of care. You can send us a note to collect your old, but still usable suitcase for painting!
