I’m sure you feel the same as I do – I can’t believe it’s almost Labor Day! What happened to summer???
This summer felt like it really flew by, no doubt due to many regular activities being curtailed because of the pandemic. It’s been a tough year so far. Let’s hope the rest of the year is better!
As with Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, our family won’t be going too far; we’ll be relaxing at home with a socially distanced BBQ.

- 28% of people said nothing would make them feel comfortable enough to go shopping over the Labor Day weekend
