Presidents’ Day 2018 – Borough offices are closed on Monday
Borough offices are closed for Presidents’ Day. The Regular Borough Council Meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 20th at 7:00 PM.
Both President’s Day and George Washington’s birthday are always celebrated on the third Monday of February. This year that’s February 19th.
The observed federal holiday is actually called George Washington’s Birthday. Certain states, however, list the holiday as Presidents’ Day.
Although the federal holiday is held on a Monday (the third Monday of February), George Washington’s birthday is observed on February 22. To complicate matters, Washington was actually born on February 11 in 1731! How can that be? To learn more visit The Old Farmer’s Almanac!
By the way, February 12th, was President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday! Happy Belated Birthday Honest Abe!!
