The Roseville Human Rights Commission hosted a naturalization ceremony at the Roseville Skating Center the afternoon of Wednesday, April 16. The ceremony commenced with a performance of “Star-Spangled Banner,” sung by city of Roseville administrative staff member Kari Collins. Judge Janie Mayeron administered the oath of allegiance whereby 54 people from 27 countries became U.S. citizens. Judge Mayeron then offered an inspiring congratulatory message to the group. The new citizens were also welcomed and congratulated by Mayor Dan Roe, Roseville Human Rights Commission Chair Wayne Groff and, via a prerecorded video message, President Barack Obama. The League of Women Voters assisted those gaining citizenship in completing their MN Voter Registration Applications. The event was celebrated with coffee and dessert, generously provided by Byerly’s of Roseville.
