Happy Birthday, Mr. Jefferson!

Mr. Jefferson's birthday is called Founder's Day in Charlottesville.  Off Grounds, City Hall and the courts are closed.  On Grounds, there are all kinds of events.  I imagine the Purple Shadows have already delivered their wreath to Jefferson's statue on the Lawn and the rest of the University is just waking up to Founder's Day.

I'm secretly hoping the two students who dress like Jefferson at sporting events wear their costumes today.  It's always funny to see them sticking out in the student section at games.

The rest of today's on Grounds events are on the official Founder's Day website.  Monticello will hold their celebration at 10 AM.

Happy Founder's Day!
