DAILY GUIDANCE AND PRESS SCHEDULE FOR
THURSDAY, JUNE 25, 2009
In the morning, the President and the Vice President will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing and the Economic Daily Briefing in the Oval Office. These briefings are closed press.
Later in the morning, the President and First Lady will join hundreds of Congressional family members and five national nonprofit organizations at Fort McNair to prepare 15,000 backpacks with books, healthy snacks, Frisbees and other items for the children of servicemen and women. The service event is part of United We Serve, President Obama's call to all Americans to engage in service projects and create meaningful impact in their towns and communities. The event is open to pre-credentialed media; the deadline to register has already passed.
In the afternoon, the President and the Vice President will meet with a small group of Senate and House members from both sides of the aisle and both sides of the issue to discuss immigration in the State Dining Room. The meeting is intended to launch a policy conversation by having an honest discussion about the issues and identifing areas of agreement and areas where we still have work to do, with the hope of beginning the debate in earnest later this year. There will be a pool spray at the bottom of the meeting.
Later in the afternoon, the President will meet separately with Secretary of Treasury Tim Geithner and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Oval Office. The President will then meet with senior advisors in the Oval Office. These meetings are closed press.
