BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ The Governor's Inaugural Celebration has been scheduled for Jan. 11 at the Bismarck Civic Center.
Republican Gov. Jack Dalrymple won his first election to the job in November, beating Democrat Ryan Taylor. Dalrymple had succeeded former Gov. John Hoeven when Hoeven was elected to the U.S. Senate two years ago.
The inauguration event is free and open to the public, and formal attire is optional. It runs from 6 p.m. to midnight that Friday. The theme for the event is ``Creating our Future, Together.''
The inaugural celebration is hosted by a volunteer organization and paid for with individual and corporate donations.
