Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message! I trust that many of you are enjoying Presidents Day so far. While it’s great to have a reason to skip work, today is an important day in our American tradition. Presidents Day first began in 1800, the year after George Washington died. People mourning the Presidential leader, celebrated his birthday which was February 22nd and later it became an official holiday in 1879 and a federal event in 1885. Today we honor all 44 presidents of the United States, but noting the two greats: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. If it weren’t for our founding fathers and their vision of America, none of us would be here today. However you chose to spend your day off, I hope you’ll reserve some time to honor what it is to be an American. Let’s make it a great week!
