Local Labor Day Fun
To some folks, Labor Day is a mark of the end of the summer and the start of the school year. To others, it marks the end of wearing white for the year. But what is Labor Day really? This holiday celebrates the social and economic achievements of American workers. Labor Day honors those who fought for better pay and working conditions years ago in what was called the 'Labor Movement.
As a business owner, this can be a great opportunity to show your staff your appreciation. As a client or local resident of the areas we serve, there are many opportunities to enjoy the holiday weekend right in your own backyard. Not sure where to get started? Let us at HG help you come up with some last minute, local, Labor Day fun!
