Presidents Day is a National Holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, it is still officially called "Washington's Birthday" by the federal government. Traditionally celebrated on February 22, Washington's actual day of birth, the holiday became popularly known as Presidents' Day after it was moved as part of 1971's Uniform Monday Holiday Act. Presidents' Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present.

 
       One of the remarkable historic preservation properties in the United States, is Mount Vernon, George Washington's home near D.C.. This photo is from a life-size exhibit at Mount Vernon.

 "For more than 150 years, the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association has protected and preserved the home of the Father of Our Country,
without government funding."       
         Mount Vernon is a wonderful place to visit any time of year with state of the art exhibits and plenty of activities and expansive grounds to walk and explore.

"The cold and flu season is worse than expected this year and is preventing many donors from giving blood. While donations may drop, the need for donated blood does not. Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion for everything from car accidents and other traumas to organ transplants, to treat blood disorders and many other medical treatments. Please go to bloodhero.com or call 877-UBS-HERO to make an appointment or book a community blood drive."

  

Mission - Since 1943
      " United Blood Services exists to make a difference in people's lives by bringing together the best people, inspiring individuals to donate blood, producing a safe and ample blood supply, advancing cutting-edge research and embracing continuous quality improvement.

       United Blood Services relies on volunteer donors to meet the blood needs of patients in Nevada. According to America's Blood Centers, fewer than 10 percent of eligible donors give annually. When you give blood at least 3 times a year, you qualify as Gold-level donor, receiving special recognition through our Hero Rewards program. Visit http://www.UnitedBloodServices.org/ to learn more."
