Exploring how work works for us
Work is such a big part of our lives but we seldom take the time to talk about our work and what it means to us. Labor Day gives us a great chance to have those conversations. We hope these resources will help!
CEREMONIES TO CHOOSE
Please take a few minutes before your Labor Day meal or celebration to read our simple ceremony with your group. Print it out or read it from smart phones.

Remembering why we have this national holiday gives us a chance to discover important things about our country and ourselves.
