PLAINS, GA (WTVM) - What better way to celebrate Presidents' Day than a visit from a former President and First Lady of the United States?  

The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site is pleased to host a Presidents' Day Celebration on Feb. 16 at 11 a.m. at the Plains High School Museum.  

President and Mrs. Carter will speak on their time in the White House followed by a short question and answer session.  

Immediately following his lecture, President Carter will be available to autograph books he has authored with a limit of up to three books per person. Due to time constraints, he will not be able to personalize the books or autograph any other items such as photographs.  

Guests will be able to purchase books at the Eastern National bookstore located inside the Plains High School Museum.  

The Plains Depot will also be open on Presidents' Day. The Plains Depot served as the 1976 Presidential Campaign Headquarters and highlights President Carter's political campaigns. Likewise, the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm will be open to the public. Visitors may experience a bit of nostalgia and learn about life in the 1930s by visiting President Carter's childhood home and farm.

Please check for upcoming events at www.nps.gov/jica.  For school field trip information and reservations, please visit www.jimmycarter.info or call the historic site at (229) 824-4104.  There is no charge for this event or to visit the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site.
