news and notes
February is heart health month, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, and another month closer to spring!!!January has just about walked out the door leaving us with unusual cold temperatures and some snowy days off of schoolWelcome Jeff Mahon (the mayor) back to our pages this month. Be sure you read what he has to say this month. I just love how heescapes to Florida where it is nice and warm while we count the days til Spring.The release of the 1940 U.S. Census will be released in April which for many of us historical and family researchers will hopefullyhold answers to many puzzles. As a professional genealogist I am among many who are fighting to keep our access to the SocialSecurity Death Index (SSDI). We are not out to use these numbers but to be able to help us identify our earlier ancestors as proof for citations in our research.

Flip and Beth Hartman are the owner operators of TriFitness located in Lakewood. Several members take advantage of fitness programs at their facility. The Hartman’s showed the group how to get fitwith simple exercises which can be done by those with limited cost, time,or physical ability. The presentation was interesting, helpful and loadedwith a good amount of levity.
As members arrived at the meeting each one was given a pin which said“The Good AARP”. This is a reminder to the members to volunteer tohelp others and to do good deeds for others as suggested by the GoodAARP Program which was recently launched.

Originally instated in 1880, this was the first federal holiday tohonor an American citizen, George Washington, on his birthday. In1971, the federal holiday was shifted to the third Monday in Febru-ary, and in the mid 
1980s advertisers pushed  to coin “Presidents  Day” publicly as opposed to “Washington’s Birthday” to cele-brates all past and current Presidents.
If you are a ‘baby boomer’ you had Presidents’ Lincoln and Washington’s birthday off of school. Today, it is celebrated as a
combined day remembering all of the U..S. Presidents fromGeorge Washington to our current President, Obama. Howev-er, some school districts over the years, have elected to not givethe day off but spend a part of their students day teaching themabout the Presidents. With this being yet another election year there may be more of afocus in some schools on who the students would elect. Dothey go back into their history books to learn how preceding 
Presidents say from the 1800 or early 1900’s stood on their po-litical believe’s. Or, would they hold mock elections to see who
 would have become President based on historical facts. To learn more about President Lincoln go to:http://www.presidentlincoln.org/ Also, visit the U.S. National Archives to learn more about Presidential history at;http://www.archives.gov
