Presidents’ Day 2021 – Borough offices are closed on Monday – no Council Meeting
Borough offices are closed for Presidents’ Day. The Regular Borough Council Meeting normally scheduled for Monday, and tentatively rescheduled for Tuesday, February 16th, is cancelled. See you at the next Council Meeting on Monday, March 1st!
Both President’s Day and George Washington’s birthday are always celebrated on the third Monday of February. This year that’s February 15th.
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, Friday, February 12th is President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday! Happy Birthday Honest Abe!!
