Happy birthday to George

I cannot tell a lie, it’s just one heck of a cheery good time at the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden on Feb. 17 in celebration of George Washington’s birthday.

Costumed dancers perform and teach participants traditional country dances, encouraging everyone to join in.

Curtsey, bow, and promenade while enjoying refreshments and a tour of the museum.
