Want to be an honorary citizen?

Staff report

Superman fans will once again have the chance to become a 'Honorary Citizen of Metropolis' during this year's Superman Celebration.

Citizen certificates will be available for purchase for $20 at the Metropolis Chamber of Commerce during the celebration.

Owners of these certificates will have the chance to stand at the Superman statue and be 'sworn in' by Metropolis Mayor Billy McDaniel. "We think that our fans will love the opportunity to be official sworn in," said Karla Ogle, Celebration co-chairperson. "I am sure that many fans will want to frame their certificates and display them in their homes or add them to their collections."

There will be two swearing-in ceremonies -- at 1 p.m. on Friday and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

For more information, call the chamber at 524-2714.
