Ronald Reagan is getting his own day, as Gov. Jerry Brown announced Wednesday.
Feb. 6 will now be remembered across California as “Ronald Reagan Day.”
Reagan, a successful actor, served as governor of California from 1967-1975. He was succeeded by Brown.
Of course, Reagan went on to be elected the 40th president of the United States.
In honor of him, Brown asks people to donate to the Ronald and Nancy Reagan Research Institute – an initiative founded to help fund Alzheimer’s research, a disease Reagan suffered from in his later years.
