In honor of the inauguration of President Joe Biden and the Presidents’ Day holiday, the display case in the lodge at Covenant Living at the Shores is featuring a collection of presidential memorabilia contributed by various staff. Items include a printed funeral sermon delivered in Boston following George Washington’s death in 1799 as well as a copy of the program from the memorial service for President George H.W. Bush at the National Cathedral. Other items include campaign buttons for Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon, bumper stickers for Hubert Humphrey and Ronald Reagan, a Ross Perot poster and a John F. Kennedy doll in a rocking chair (that plays “Happy Days are Here Again”). There is also a campaign flier announcing a rally in California with Robert Kennedy a couple weeks before his death.
