Letter: Honoring George Washington

Letter: Honoring George Washington

To the Editor:

I commend Mayor Euille for proclaiming February 2012 as a month-long celebration to mark George Washington’s 280th birthday and the Birthday Committee for planning and facilitating the events and activities throughout the month.

In addition to the annual February celebration, I would like to see the City of Alexandria establish a tangible and lasting tribute to George Washington as its most famous and revered citizen.

A bronze statue that can be visited year-round would appropriately recognize the unparalleled significance of his contributions to our City and the Nation.
