It’s Show Time
October 5th & 6th 2013
Guy Lee Elementary
Hello all club members!!! It is the time of the year we need to know how many of you folks will be helping with the show.
We will all meet at the school on Friday the 4th at 6 pm to set up the tables and get ready for Saturday’s show.
We are still receiving applications and hope things turn out as good as last year.
Jim Nelson has flyers printed and we need to get them out to as many places as we can.
Lend a hand and support the show, it’s only as good as we, “our members” make it.
If anyone has some ideas or suggestions for the show, please attend the meeting on September 10th, 2013. We need all of you there………………………………
Labor Day LegislationThrough the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From them developed the movement to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers, and on June 28 of that year, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.
Looks like Oregon has more than one “first” on the book!!!
