Presidents Day

The federal holiday we know as Presidents’ Day is officially intended to celebrate George Washington’s birthday on February 22.

Lincoln’s birthday falls on February 12, and so a dozen states have chosen to celebrate the third Monday of each February as Presidents’ Day, instead.

A few states, including Illinois, also mark Lincoln’s Birthday on February 12.  Unfortunately, for most people it doesn’t mean a day off from school or work.

This February 15, join us for gaming and snacks in the large meeting room from 3-5:00pm.  We’ll have our Xbox and Wii consoles set up, and will be testing out Karaoke Revolution.

Happy Holidays!
