The first Monday in September is recognized as “Labor Day.” Typically, this holiday is enjoyed by many getting in their last family vacation, picnic, or simply having another day to rest before starting a new school year or work week. I have also read that Labor Day is also unofficially the last day to wear white clothes or the end of Hot Dog season. While these are just some things that Labor Day is now known for, the true reason it was made a federal legal holiday in 1894 was to support the many workers contributing to the state of the U.S. Economy.
This Labor Day, we celebrate everyone in our community and beyond that support our businesses and help us to have a thriving community. I would like to express my thanks to everyone in all positions who show up each day to make a difference in someone’s life, especially those who have to work on the Labor Day Holiday. At JMHS, we are a team of “difference makers,” and the number of hours these individuals contribute to the organization is sincerely appreciated. Join me in celebration of our local and national workforce!
