George Washington's Birthday Breakfast
Presidents Day, February 17, 2014, 8 - 10:30 am
Pohick Church, the colonial church of George Washington, will hold a special commemorative breakfast and service on February 17th to mark the national observance of Washington’s birthday.
The full breakfast, which begins at 8:45 am, is open to the public, with tickets at the door running $10 per person or $25 per family. As part of the program, reenactor Laurie Kittle will portray Mrs. Catherine Macaulay Graham, biographer of George Washington, who will reflect on her time spent with the Washingtons at Mt. Vernon while researching our first President's life and career.
The breakfast will be preceded by a worship service at 8 am in the Historic Church, led by the current Rector, the Rev. Dr. Donald Binder. It will use the Order for Morning Prayer from the 1662 English Book of Common Prayer, the service Washington and other of our nation's founders used in their regular Sunday worship at Pohick.
The service is free-of-charge, as are the docent tours at the conclusion of the overall event.
For Tickets, Call the Pohick Church office at 703-339-6572
