For the first time ever, new United States citizens will be sworn in during a naturalization ceremony in Bellevue on Friday, September 23. It’s a first for Bellevue – and a nice way to end national Constitution Week.

According to the Downtown Bellevue Association, 30 percent of Bellevue’s 122,363 residents were born outside of the United States. The ceremony will be overseen by Bellevue Deputy Mayor Conrad Lee, a naturalized US citizen from China.

The ceremony, scheduled for 11:00am at Bellvue City Hall, will include the new US citizens reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and an ensemble from the Bellevue Chamber Chorus performing the National Anthem.
