Leap Year Party
February 29, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Mark your calendars – Saturday, February 29th at the Clubhouse! What better way to celebrate a day that only comes once every 4 years – leap day. Beer and spirits leftover from the FCF holiday party will be provided. We’ll gather at the clubhouse at 6:30, with everyone bringing an appetizer to share. If you would prefer wine, bring that as well.
History – leap days are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth’s revolutions around the Sun. Roman general Julius Caesar implemented the first leap day in his Julian Calendar , which he introduced in 45 BCE . A leap day was added every four years. At the time, leap day was February 24, and February was the last month of the year.
