Monday is Presidents Day, a federal holiday that gives some people — but not everyone — the day off.
Here’s the scoop on which government offices are open/closed and who is meeting:
- Pine Township municipal offices: Open
- Pine Community Center: Open
- Pine Board of Supervisors: Postponed its Monday meeting to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Pine Community Center.
- Richland Township municipal offices: Open
- Richland Township Planning Commission: Meets at 7 p.m. in the Richland Township Municipal Building.
- Northern Tier Library: Richland center is open. Pine center, located at Pine-Richland High School, is closed.
- Allegheny County offices and courts: Closed.
- Pennsylvania state offices and courts: Closed. That includes PennDOT drivers license centers, which are closed Saturday through Monday.
- Federal offices: Closed, of course, because it is a federal holiday.
If you're looking to do something presidential, instead of simply hitting Presidents Day sales, here's a list of presidential sites compiled by Lauren Himiak for About.com's National & State Parks website:
George Washington Birthplace National Monument in Virginia;
Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial in Indiana;
Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Illinois.
The National Park Service also maintains a number of sites that commemorate other past presidents, including John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, Martin Van Buren, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses Grant, James Garfield, Teddy Roosevelt, William Taft, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.
For that four-for-the-price-of-one site, there's Mount Rushmore.
