The Story of Labor Day

Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and began as a tribute to workers who have allowed the United States to proper. At first it was a holiday adopted state by state. Over time the celebration began to catch nationwide and, in 1894, Labor Day was approved as a national holiday to be observed on the first Monday of every September.

There is some dispute as to who is truly the father of Labor Day. Traditionally it was attributed to Peter J. McGuire, a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor. However, historians in recent years believe a New York Central Union secretary named Matthew Maguire could have come up with Labor Day first.

McGuire or Maguire, it is still a great holiday celebrating workers of this United States!

Have a wonderful Labor Day and celebrate your right to this day off with family and friends.

Community 2017 Memorial Day Thank You!!!

We would like to thank all of our men and women who are currently serving. We would like to thank the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation. Without these individuals who have given their life, my family, would not have an opportunity to live in this country. If you are out this weekend please remind yourself that this weekend is not about sales or an extended weekend so we can have a barbecue. Please stop for a few minutes to remember the men and women that have given their life so that we can be in a free nation. Without their work our nation would be a different place. Without our countries support of the military they cannot survive. Please if you can donate your services, products or time to a special veterans group that is near and dear to your heart. Have a blessed weekend!!

We would like to thank all of the women in our lives who we would consider Mother's. Have a blessed weekend and please enjoy your special day. We would also like to say thank you to everybody who runs, walks, sponsors or volunteers at the Mom's on the Run. I would like to say thank you. My own Mom lost her battle last year to breast cancer. Without organizations like Mom's on the Run her life would have been cut shorter. Thank you again to all of our special ladies in our life. They put up with our good and bad days. They also help us when we need them most. Please make sure that you make them feel special because they are. Remind them of how important they are and how vital they are to your life.
