Happy Labor Day from ALLIANCE lockhart!

Traditionally, Labor Day was an occasion to campaign for and celebrate workers' rights during parades and picnics organized by trade unions. These still play a role in Labor Day for some Canadians, but many people see the first Monday in September as an opportunity to take a late summer trip, perhaps to their country cottage, or enjoy the company of family or friends at picnics, fairs, festivals and fireworks displays. For teenagers and other students, the Labor Day weekend is the last chance to celebrate with a party or to go on a trip before school re-opens for the new academic year.
