George Washington’s Birthday Commemoration Set for Monday, February 22

The Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter is partnering with the John L. Street Library in Cadiz this month to educate the community regarding George Washington’s Birthday.

Tomorrow afternoon we will install a public display at the library featuring a portrait of George Washington, his headquarters flag, the Grand Union flag of the American revolution, and information correcting the record regarding the so-called “President’s Day.”  The display will remain available to the public through Monday, February 22, the actual birthday of George Washington.  On that day at 2:00 PM compatriots of the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter will arrive in uniform to retire the display and present a book to Pam Metts, Library Director, entitled Washington at Valley Forge by Russell Freedman.

The public is, of course, invited to attend the brief ceremony.  Both the chapter and the library hope that this can become an annual tradition in honor of George Washington’s Birthday.
