HAPPY PRESIDENT'S DAY
Monday, February 20, 2017
Presidents’ Day is an American 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, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present.

10/21/11 Leo Club Project Successful
Once again the Grass Lake Leo Club has completed a major volunteer project as they completed a ramp at a home where the resident recently has been confined to a wheel chair. Thank you to the Leo Club members and their advisors for their wonderful generosity and hard work!
Leo Club Assists Repairing Field
Recently the newly developed soccer fields at the Grass Lake Sports and Trails Recreation Park were vandalized by someone driving through them during seasonably wet times and spinning tires throughout the weather. This will inevitably delay this spring's use of the field, which was being counted on. Click here to see the Cit Pat story. If you have any information leading to the identification of the perpetrators, please contact the Jackson County Sheriff's Department by calling 911. We would like thank everyone, including the Grass Lake Leo's, who have worked to re-build the fields.
