President's Day is not just another day (hopefully) off work in Mentor.
Not in the home city of President James A. Garfield.
One of the ways people can celebrate President's Day this year is by dining with Garfield, his wife Lucretia Garfield and more first couples at Yours Truly's annual Dinner With Presidents.
Portrayers of President James and Mrs. Lucretia Garfield, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and President George Washington will stroll through the restaurant entertaining guests from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 18.
The historical re-enactors are from We Made History and several are from the Mentor area.
Adults and children can play a presidential trivia game to win prizes. Guests are encouraged to dress as their favorite president or first lady. The event is free and no reservations are necessary.
The Mentor Public Library will also be at the dinner, providing books on presidents and leading trivia contests.
“This event continues to be a favorite family activity throughout the Yours Truly community,” said Yours Truly Partner Jeffrey Shibley.
