      Nay, I say. Arbor Day is April 26th. Big time celebration. Unless, of course, a meteor explodes over Clarendon and ruins everything.

    Legally, it’s “George Washington Day”.

    We also forgot a legal announcement for Jackson-Jefferson day in January.

      I’m guessing that you mean Lee-Jackson Day.

    They need to make Earth Day (April 22) a federal holiday. That would take care of the drought.
