Looking at the events planned for September, it makes my heart happy to see all the activities. September is packed full of things to do and I know you are probably ready to get out, especially since the kids have started school. With the cooler weather, take advantage of the bike trails, walking at the lake or RSU’s Nature Reserve, and having a bonfire with your family and friends. You can even hit the greens at Heritage Hills Golf Course. These are the perfect escapes before winter hits and we are shut in from cold weather.
As of right now, these events are still scheduled to go on. Please check their websites or give them a call before attending, just to make sure.
Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States, celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States. It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend.
Have a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend!
