President's Message: Labor Day
























As the summer days grow shorter, our kids head back to school, and football season starts to heat up, it means Labor Day is right around the corner! For many of us, this holiday is synonymous with a long weekend spent with family and friends, but knowing its history is important. Know that YOU are the reason behind this holiday.
