AIT Offices to Close for Holiday

All offices of the American Institute in Taiwan will be closed on Monday, May 29, 2000, in observance of Memorial Day. This includes the Travel Services Section, the American Trade Center, the American Cultural Center, the American Cultural Center Resource Service and the AIT Kaohsiung branch office.

Celebrated on the fourth Monday of May, this holiday honors the dead. Although it originated in the aftermath of the Civil War, it has become a day on which the dead of all wars, and the dead generally, are remembered in special programs held in cemeteries, churches, and other public meeting places.
