  • | NATL - National Holidays
    - President's Day observes the birthdays of George Washington (Feb 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12). With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.

  • - A 1,210-pound bomb packed in a van exploded in the underground parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000 (mostly from smoke inhalation). The powerful blast left a crater 200 feet wide and several stories deep. The cost for damage to the building and disruption of business for the 360 companies with offices in the Center exceeded $591 million. Fifteen people - the fundamentalist Muslim cleric Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman and 14 of his followers were indicted for the bombing. Rahman was given a life sentence, and the others received prison terms of up to 240 years each.

    - FROM FARM TO FAMILY

    Oakland County Market is a mainstay for providing grower-direct fresh produce and flowers to county residents and visitors. The maket hosts more than 100 farmers and artisans, representing 17 Michigan counties.

    A producer-direct market, participating vendors must grow or make the products that they bring for sale during the main season (May-October). During the off season (November-April), vendors may bring approved farm market type items no produced by themselves.

    MORE THAN JUST FRUITS AND VEGGIES

    Shoppers will find fresh vegetables, fruits and baked goods as well as flowers, artisan crafts and more.

    Spend the day at the market and enjoy a breakfast sandwich or barbeque lunch served by market vendors.

    The market also hosts many special events and educational programs and can be rented by the public for various purposes.

    Not all vendors participate in the market year-round; many are seasonal.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.
