Crowds Flock to Presidential Library (~not~ a Founding Father) for President's Day

YORBA LINDA – Lured by the offer of free admission, cherry pie, and a chance to meet Abraham Lincoln, Orange County residents and visitors from as far away as Temecula, flocked to the Richard Nixon Presidential Library & Museum to celebrate Presidents Day.

By 10 a.m. the parking lot at the Library was full and visitors trekked from overflow lots across the street to climb aboard the presidential helicopter or pose for pictures with impersonators of presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.

"I thought it would be good to try and remember what Presidents Day is about," said Dawn Koscelnik of Yorba Linda, who brought her three sons to the Library. "It's not about going and buying things, but seeing history."
