George Washington visits the Perkins

Students at the Michael J. Perkins Elementary School in South Boston recently were among the first in the country to view the new gold one-dollar coin and receive a history lesson on the life of George Washington – from the first President himself. The Perkins was included on a national tour organized by the U.S. Mint to debut its new one-dollar gold coin featuring George Washington, the first in a series as part of the Presidential $1 Coin program. Pictured here, President George Washington, portrayed by interpreter Dean Malissa, gives fourth and fifth grade students at the Perkins a sneak preview of the new coin.

Your Boston School Children might like to see a part of President George W. honoring President George W. (Washington that is) at Mount Vernon on the Monday George Washington Birthday Federal Holiday (NOT "Presidents Day" by Public Law 90-363). see
