Here's to the fruits of our labors

This weekend is Labor Day Weekend, culminating in the celebration of Labor Day on Monday. For some, it signals a three-day weekend, barbecues, golf outings and family reunions. For others, it’s the end of summer, the start of a new school year and the start of the football season. For retailers it’s probably one of the biggest sales weekends of the year.

That’s great, but it’s also important to remember why Labor Day came to be. It was originally established to celebrate the achievements of workers and to recognize their contributions – no matter what industry – to the strength and welfare of this country; to celebrate workers and their commitment to the past, present and future.

So, while we enjoy this weekend and all its celebrations, let’s take some time to celebrate the hard work, accomplishments and contributions that make our country a better place.

Wishing you a safe and happy Labor Day!
