Story posted January 15, 1999

Jan. 5, 1998, BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Bowdoin College will host one of its most illustrious neighbors, Gov. Angus King, as he celebrates his second inauguration. King lives with his wife and their two children just blocks from campus.

The event is scheduled to run from 8 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Jan. 9 at the Farley Field House. People wishing to attend can buy tickets for $10 at any People's Heritage Bank or by calling the Augusta Civic Center at 626-2400. The Field House will hold 5,000 people, and the gala is expected to sell out.

Entertainment will be provided by the Don Campbell Band, Santa Fe, Jim Ciampi & The Manhattan Nine and the Van Gogh Gos, with a special "Inaugurale" beer brewed by Gritty McDuff's and the Shipyard Brewing Co. of Portland.

Parking will not be allowed at Farley Field House, but the Inaugural Committee has established six satellite parking areas from which it will transport guests by bus: the Ames property, Bath Iron Works' James Building and Harding Plant, all on the Bath Road; BIW's Church Road facility, and the St. Charles Church and old Brunswick High School on McKeen Street.

For more information, but NOT to buy tickets, call the inaugural committee at 729-1188.
