*Have a Fun-Filled Labor Day*

Happy-Labor-Day-Kids

For a lot of people, Labor Day means two things: a day off and the end of summer. But why is it called Labor Day?

Observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.

Labor Day also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events.

 Neighborhood Block Party: Get to know your neighbors with an old-fashioned block party. Ask people to bring games and food to share. Take the kids to a discount movie that they really wanted to see but missed.

Day Trip It: Pull out a map, pick a tourist destination within 2-3 hours, and plan a day-long adventure to your new destination!

  Why not Pack Up The Tents and hit the nearest Campground for some much deserved rest and relaxation? Family campgrounds will often host a variety of events just for the holiday, but plan early.

Most campsites book quickly for holiday weekends, so reserve your space well in advance.

Labor Day”

Throw up our feet,
start up the grill,
toss on the ‘burgers
and we’ll all eat our fill.

Put up the tools,
watch the grass grow,
forget the leak
and the commode overflow.

The dishes can wait;
go out and play.
There’s good reason to be lazy…
it’s called Labor Day!
