On Sept. 22, 2017, we will official welcome Fall. However, Labor Day, celebrated the first Monday in September, is considered the unofficial end of summer. But it is still 3 weeks off so in the meantime, we can enjoy the waning days of summer 2017. Don’t miss out on the final First Friday Concert, rescheduled to Sept. 15. The Swingin’ Medallions are expected to help us celebrate the end of the summer in downtown Monroe. The final Groovin on the Green Concert in Loganville is scheduled for the same night, featuring Fill Dirt and the Dozers.
Labor Day honors the American labor movement, paying tribute to workers who have contributed to the strength and prosperity of the nation. Due to the recent natural disaster in Texas as a result of Hurricane Harvey, instead of celebrating with a day of rest, many workers are using their skills to help rescue and begin renovations in the areas hardest hit. Nothing showcases the strength of the American worker more than the response to a natural disaster. In Walton County, volunteers are working Monday to gather donations to send to Texas to help the victims.
Happy Labor Day!
