Labor Day!

September 3rd is Labor Day! So, just how did this national holiday evolve? Labor Day is meant to honor and acknowledge American workers and has its roots in the labor movement. Labor Day was first celebrated during the early 1880’s, and over a decade later, the holiday had gained national and Congressional recognition. In addition to being a day of relaxation, Labor Day is often celebrated with parades, parties and festivals.

We appreciate the workers of this country and give special thanks to our hardworking farmers and ranchers! Happy Labor Day!

More information on this holiday can be found at the U.S. Department of Labor Website on the following page: http://www.dol.gov/opa/aboutdol/laborday.htm.
