ATHENS — Henderson County offices will close Friday through Monday for the Memorial Day weekend.

The courthouse and other county locations have traditionally closed on a Friday in May for Fiddlers Day. County employees were given May 24 as a holiday this year in anticipation of the event. The county’s 2013 holiday schedule was already set when the organizers of Fiddlers Day decided to make it a Friday night and Saturday affair on May 31 and June 1.

Closures include the Henderson County Courthouse, courthouse annex, sheriff’s office, county and district courts, the Henderson County Clint Murchison Library, the precinct headquarters and sub-courthouses in Seven Points and Chandler.

In addition to the holiday closures, County Judge Richard Sanders’ office has announced there will be no meeting of Commissioners Court on Tuesday.

It will be business as usual for the city of Athens on Friday, but offices will close Monday for the holiday. Athens Independent School District and other area schools will not have classes on Monday.
