Colorado Man to Join Former Presidents at Bush Dedication

Dedication to be held at 10 a.m. Thursday

All five living U.S. presidents and a Loveland, Colo. man are going to Dallas on Thursday for the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

David Balsiger, president of Balsiger Media Enterprises of Loveland, will be one of about 1,000 guests.

On Thursday, the George W. Bush Presidential Center will celebrate its dedication, an invitation-only event scheduled to host all of the living presidents, from George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush, to President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, to Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, and George H.W. Bush.

The list of confirmed invitees also includes dozens of high profile public servants, including former Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell, former Secretary of Defense Bob Gates, Former Attorneys General John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales, and former Education Secretary Rod Paige.

According to the Loveland Reporter-Herald, Balsiger received an invitation to the small ceremony because of a documentary he worked on about the former president in 2004, which looked at Bush's faith and its role in his life.

NBC 5 will provide live coverage of the George W. Bush Presidential Center on Thursday at 10 a.m. We will provide an encore presentation Thursday at 6:30 p.m. on COZI-TV on Digital Channel 5.2
