Presidents’ Day 2016 at the McLean County Museum of History will be a celebration of America’s great righthand men because this year, Presidents’ Day will be Vice Presidents’ Day! Join us 12-3 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 15 for a free, family-friendly open house featuring games, crafts, sweets, and our annual mock election. This free event is sponsored in part by State Farm Bank.
Did you know?
•* Prior to 1967 there was no official line of succession to the presidency. People merely assumed that the vice president would be happy to fill the role.
•* Of the United States’ 47 vice presidents, 14 have become president.
•* William King holds the title of the United States’ shortest lasting vice president, having held the office for a mere three weeks.
•* Famed Tonight Show host Johnny Carson once said, “Democracy means that anyone can grow up to be president, and anyone who doesn’t grow up can be vice president.”

We’ll see if Johnny’s words ring true as we put America’s VPs in the VIP spotlight. Make plans to join us for this annual Open House event.
