Today (Monday) is Washington’s birthday, a federal, Missouri and county holiday.
Most federal, state and county offices are closed, with the exception of emergency services such as the Missouri State Highway Patrol and sheriff’s offices. Banks and financial institutions are closed, and there will be no regular mail delivery today.
The Missouri Legislature is not in session today: state lawmakers will return to Jefferson City tomorrow.
George Washington was a founding father, and served as the first U.S. President from 1789 to 1797.
