It is that time again. Kids are back at school, BBQ season is drawing to a close, and soon the crisp fall weather will be creeping in. The unofficial end of summer has arrived. Labor Day weekend, a time to fire up the grill one last time, head to a parade, picnic in the park, or relax on the beach. Labor day is a great weekend for making lasting summer memories (some of my favorite childhood memories were made during Naperville’s Last Fling!), but why do we celebrate Labor Day?
