The iconic national landmark The Washington Monument will be re-opening for the first time in 3 years on Thursday after the repairs on the building following earthquake damage finish up.
None other than our beautiful first lady Melania Trump will be attending the ribbon-cutting!

Here's Melania's official announcement of her planned attendance to the Monument re-opening:
Daily Mail has more to say about Melania Trump attending the re-opening ceremony of the national landmark:
Melania Trump will formally reopen the Washington Monument next week, participating in the ribbon cutting ceremony and riding the elevator to the top.
The first lady will be front and center next Thursday when the famous landmark reopens to the public after it was closed for three years for repairs, her office announced on Friday.
Billionaire benefactor David Rubenstein stepped in with a $7.5 million donation to help fund the work – including repairing its elevator and shoring up its structure.
The monument had been closed on and off for more than five years since the August 23, 2011, earthquake that struck the nation's capital and the rest of the Eastern seaboard.
Between 2014 and 2016, its elevator to the top of the 555-foot marble and granite structure broke down 24 times, often stranding visitors.
It was closely fully for repairs in 2016.
The Hill also gave these details:
The iconic landmark in the nation's capital is poised to open to the public on Sep. 19. The obelisk, which first opened in 1888, had been closed for more than three years — well before President Trump won office — for upgrades.
The first lady is set to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the National Park Service on Thursday, her press office announced Friday. Trump will also embark on a ceremonial ride to the top of the 555-foot tall structure.
