In the late 1800's, the U.S. Congress designated the first Monday in September as Labor Day, a day to commend work and those who do it.  It is a day set aside to rest from labor, and to remember all those who labor to build this nation, in the farms, factories, offices, warehouses, stores and schools - any place where honorable, honest labor is performed. 

Workers are essential in our society.  Those who work fuel the progress of nations and the betterment of our community. 

Work is good for the soul.  It builds muscle and character; it strengthens hand and heart; and nothing gets done or moves forward without it.  

Labor Day - a celebration of the blessing of work.
