The dog days of summer are coming to a close. The first weekend in September is Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of summer. Labor Day honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the development, growth, endurance, strength, security, prosperity, productivity, and well-being of our great country. Labor Day is a great time to relax, enjoy your time off work, and be around your loved ones. It is also a wonderful time of year for gardeners and cooks to enjoy the bounty of the harvest and use up the last of the fresh grown ingredients that summer has offered.
A family get-together to celebrate Labor Day is a fantastic opportunity to learn about your senior loved one’s experience in the workforce, past Labor Day traditions, what life was like in past years, what they liked to grow in the garden, what they liked to cook, and perhaps even share their favorite recipes from their youth. We hope you enjoy your time together as you reminisce about the good old days.
