RRM will be closed on Monday, September 5th - Labor Day!
Always the first Monday in September, Labor Day was the idea of Peter J. Maguire (although recent research has shown that it might have been his brother Matthew’s idea), a labor union leader who in 1882 proposed a celebration honoring the American worker.
The date chosen was simply “convenient,” according to Maguire, because it was midway between the 4th of July and Thanksgiving. Although the day’s focus on organized labor has diminished over the years, the legal holiday still marks the end of summer and the traditional time for children to return to school.
Traditionally, Labor Day consists of barbecues, camping, and preparing for the new school year. ENJOY YOUR DAY!
