Tomorrow, we celebrate Labor Day, a national holiday observed on the first Monday in September of each year.
Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day weekend also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans and is celebrated with parties, street parades and athletic events.
The Women’s Club has no “workers” but relies solely on our member volunteers. Without them, we could not be a successful 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity organization. Without them, we could not offer our members a variety of social and informative programs. Without them, we could not undertake fundraisers, such as our holiday arts & craft fair and the neighborhood luminaria sales, that support our scholarship awards and the underserved in Clay County. Without them, we would cease to be!
So, a very Happy Labor Day to our “workers” – each and every one of our Women’s Club members!
