Celebrating Presidents Day

Mount Rushmore - Celebrating Presidents Day

As we approach Presidents Day, February 19, 2024, a national holiday that honors the leaders who have shaped the history of the United States, People Driven Credit Union takes a moment to reflect on the significance of this day and how it impacts our members.

Understanding Presidents Day

Presidents Day, celebrated on the third Monday of February, has a rich history. Originally established to commemorate George Washington’s birthday on February 22, the holiday evolved to include honoring all U.S. presidents. Today, it serves as a time to reflect on the contributions of past leaders and their impact on the nation.

As we pay homage to these figures, it’s essential to acknowledge the effects of holidays like Presidents Day on the operations of financial institutions.

Why Are Banks and Credit Unions Closed on Holidays?

You may wonder why banks and credit unions close their doors on holidays like Presidents Day. The primary reason is to observe and respect these important national and cultural occasions. It allows employees to enjoy a well-deserved break, spend time with their families, and reflect on the day’s historical significance.

While credit union branches may be closed on Presidents Day, the commitment to serving our members remains unwavering.
