Happy Labour day!

 

 

Labour Day (Labor Day in the United States) is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. For most countries, Labour Day is synonymous with, or linked with, International Workers’ Day, which occurs on 1 May.
In Canada and the United States, Labour Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September and considered the unofficial end of summer, with summer vacations ending and students returning to school around then.

The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal for the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations”, followed by a festival for the workers and their friends and families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the civil significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the Labor movement.

Labor Day is called the “unofficial end of summer” because it marks the end of the cultural summer season. Many take their two-week vacations during the two weeks ending Labor Day weekend. Many fall activities, such as school and sports begin about this time.

Gananoque’s Farmer’s Market

 

 

Willa Mamet + Paul Miller: two voices and a guitar, like you’re at the kitchen table with us. Folk, country, Americana, and grassy soul. All at the beautiful farmer’s market of this wonderful community. Come enjoy!

Hear what Patti LuPone calls “heartbreaking, ancient” – and what Vermont Public Radio’s Robert Resnik loves so much: “This music deserves to be preserved, and celebrated, and performed. Willa Mamet and Paul Miller have exactly what it takes to get the job done, and the pleasure is in the delivery – at their best, Willa Mamet and Paul Miller invite you into that Vermont kitchen when they first found musical magic so many years ago. Come listen to some fine music masterfully played and sung.” -Robert Resnik, Vermont Public Radio

St Patrick’s Day

 

5

 

St Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador on the nearest Monday to March 17 each year. It remembers St Patrick, a missionary who converted many of Ireland’s inhabitants to Christianity in the 5th century. His feast day also celebrates Irish culture.

St Patrick’s Day marks the feast day and anniversary of the death of a Christian missionary known as Patrick. He was born in the year 387, probably somewhere near the present day border between Scotland and England. At the age of 16, he was captured and taken to Ireland as a slave. During this period, he became very religious and after six years he fled back to his family.

St Patrick’s Day celebrations were brought to Canada by Irish immigrants. The day is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland. In the rest of the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, it is celebrated, but is not an official holiday.
People who have an Irish background or enjoy Irish culture may hold Irish themed parties and serve traditional dishes, such as Colcannon or Irish stew. Colcannon is a dish of mashed potatoes mixed with kale or cabbage and Irish stew is traditionally made with lamb and root vegetables.

Symbol

The most widely-seen St Patrick’s Day symbols are the colors green, and sometimes orange, and the shamrock. The shamrock is a symbol of Ireland and a registered trademark of the Republic of Ireland. It is the leaf of the clover plant, which grows on the ground, often among grass and an Irish Catholic symbol of the Holy Trinity. It is sometimes confused with the four-leaf clover, which is a variety of the three-leaf clover and is thought to bring good luck.

Fall Foliage and Lunch Cruise

29

It’s time for a scenic fall colour boat cruise in Ontario.

 

If you’re like us, you never tire of that annual rite known as the fall colours. It’s when forests and meadows and treed boulevards turn from green to a riot of reds, yellows and oranges. It’s the colour of happiness, though tinged with a bit of sadness because after all, this display of natural beauty leaves little doubt that summer, alas, is truly over.

If you’re like us and love water, you’ll want to fit a cruise into your 2012 leaf-peeping tours. The combination of fresh air, vivid colours and shimmering waters is truly good for the soul. To help you set your compass, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite fall colour boat cruises in Ontario. The most popular cruises are booking up fast, so don’t wait to make that reservation!

Dinner includes: Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, hot seasonal vegetables, cranberry sauce, mixed green salad, pumpkin praline pie and coffee or tea.

 

Fees :

  • $52.50 per adult with meal or $36.50 per adult without meal.
  • Children 3-5 cruise and meal $8.00
  • Children 6-12 cruise and meal $28.50
