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.

Carleton Place Dragon Boat Festival

 

Welcome to The Fall 400™ Dragon Boat Festival!

On September 09, 2017, the town of Carleton Place will once again find Riverside Park teaming with excitement. Preparing for another successful year, we plan on another full festival with over 1000 paddlers and drummers coursing across the finish line with a large number of spectators cheering them on. Visitors from all over Eastern Ontario are drawn to this event.

Come, be a part of the The Fall 400™ Dragon Boat Festival – Carleton Place’s newest tradition and one of the world’s oldest.

The mission of the Festival Committee is to host the best (fun & well-run) small, one-day dragon-boat event in Eastern Ontario.  We are a non-profit organization that returns 100% of the proceeds back to the community.

This festival provides a close-up view of the dragon boats. The entire race is in full view from the banks of the Mississippi. All proceeds from this fun, well-run dragon-boat event are returned to the community. Since it began in 2002, more than $40,500 has been donated to local organizations! In addition to the exciting races you’ll also find entertainment in Riverside Park, activities for kids, food and merchandise. Check for information about races, rules and fees.

The 2017 race card is here.

Take back the night

 

For the past several years Carleton Place has been host to one of the most well-attended rural Take Back the Night Marches in Canada. Even on the soggiest of nights local residents turn out with their banners and noise-makers in record numbers. All to demand that a womanʼs right to walk our streets safely be upheld.

Take Back the Night is an action created to enable large numbers of women to publicly express our anger at the sexual violence that goes on and the victim blaming that accompanies it. Not every woman has been sexually assaulted, but every woman has been taught to fear it. We are told from the time we are young not to walk alone, not to go out after dark, to avoid strangers and to avoid dangerous areas of town. This advice is useless in the face of the reality that the largest number of women experience violence in their own home, at the hand of someone they know. The Take Back the Night March is a public protest organized by women, for women. It serves as a means for women to unite and voice our desire to end the fear and perceived responsibility women experience when it comes to sexual assault, harassment, and other forms of violence.
