This Week in Easton, February 18 to 21

Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were so awesome, their combined birthdays are now a federal holiday, and that means a lot of people will get to start this week with a day off. Of course, it used to be that each got their own birthday celebration, and that translated into two days off for a lot of folks, but hey--most of us will take what we can get these days...
