Happy Labor Day!
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. One of the reasons for choosing to celebrate this on the first Monday in September was to add a holiday in the long gap between Independence Day and Thanksgiving. Labor Day is observed as a state and federal holiday.
I hope you have made plans with family and friends to enjoy some time together for good food, fun and fellowship. I wish everyone a very safe holiday weekend!
