Labor Day

  • The First Day-Labor Day Connection

    The connection between the beginning of a new school year and Labor Day is for most of us a calendar coincidence. Both milestones are worthy of fanfare and commemoration, but the link between the two seems largely a matter of timing. A report released last week by the New Haven-based public policy research group Connecticut Voices for Children suggests, however, that the state’s labor picture and our collective aspirations for schoolchildren are directly connected.

  • Labor Day Pancakes & Parking At NCC

    Newtown Congregational Church will host its annual Pancakes & Parking event on Monday.

    Not only is the church, at 14 West Street, offering convenient and ample parking for the Labor Day Parade, but the church is also offering a nice hot pancake breakfast before the big event.

    All are invited to park in NCC’s lot between 8 and 9:30 am on September 2 and enjoy a delicious breakfast including sides.
