George Washington’s Birthday Display at John L. Street Library

The Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter has partnered with Pam Metts at the John L. Street Library to place a special display in honor of George Washington’s Birthday.  It is an excellent opportunity to partially “correct the record” on the real name of the holiday.  In case you didn’t know … according to the Federal record … the third Monday of February is officially known as “George Washington’s Birthday.”  NOT the popularly celebrated “President’s Day.”  The name has never been changed by Congress.

So join us this year in celebrating the true holiday honoring our first Commanding General and Commander in Chief!
