The History of Presidential R&R
The Sterling-Rock Falls Historical Society will host their next program on Sunday, May 21, at 2:00 PM. The event will be held at the Lincoln Learning Center at 611 East Third Street in Sterling. Guest speaker Ronald H. Koehn will present a PowerPoint program titled “Presidential R & R: From T. Roosevelt to Obama.” The program is free and open to the public.
There are at least three dozen meanings given to the acronym “R and R.” However, most folks think of it as an abbreviation for “rest and relaxation,” “rest and recreation,” or “rest and recuperation.” Those who work hard physically, put in long hours, or are mentally fatigued or stressed out by their work need “R and R.” They need some pleasant diversions to help “recharge their batteries” so that they can return to their work refreshed and with renewed vigor.
