Richard Lederer in patriotic attire
Verbivore Richard Lederer was again our speaker at the February 27, 2020 meeting.  This year his focus was on U.S. President trivia that can be used to win bets with your friends on drinking outings.  Read on for some fun facts. 
First, although the Presidential numbering stands at 45, there actually have only been 44 different presidents since Grover Cleveland, who served two non-consecutive terms, was counted twice.   The oldest president to take office was actually Donald Trump, who was 71 when he was inaugurated. Among other trivia, he asked whether anyone could name the only five presidents who are not buried in the United States (think about it for a moment).  For more fun facts about our 44 U.S. Presidents, pick up a copy of Richard’s book, “Presidential Trivia”.
