Ephrata AM 1-21-21





Good Morning Ephrata NAMES today is Thursday January 21, 2021. Please rise for a moment of silence and the pledge to the flag.




This is an announcement that despite the mixup last week, GSA will definitely be meeting tomorrow in room 112 until 4. We would like to officially apologize for the last minute cancellation of our meeting last week and let you know that it won’t happen again. We hope to see you there tomorrow.


And now over to ____________ with the news




In today’s news, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were officially sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States. As soon as Biden got into the oval office, he got to work and is already reversing some of Trump’s policies with executive orders. He has signed 15 executive orders so far, with the first to boost the federal response to the coronavirus crisis. There will be a mandate to wear masks and practice social distancing on all federal government property. Other orders that were signed reversed the Trump administration’s stance on climate change and immigration.
