It’s hard to believe Labor Day Weekend has already arrived. Despite the wonderful summer we have enjoyed in the northwest, it’s still hard to say goodbye to summer. We hope you had a terrific season and have some fun plans to stretch those dog days of summer though the long weekend. Enjoy!
A little trivia from Wikipedia for those that may have forgotten why we are able to enjoy this long, 3-day weekend.
Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September, that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers. It was first nationally recognized in 1894 to placate unionists following the Pullman Strike. With the decline in union membership, the holiday is generally viewed as a time for barbeques and the end of summer vacations.
