End of Summer?

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. End of Summer? NO WAY! Even though the calendar says summer isn’t over until September 22nd, those of us that live and work in RE/MAX Lakes Area Realty country, do see a big change after Labor Day weekend. The kids have gone back to school, and football is back at every level.
Side Note: I bleed purple, so the Vikings
better win the Super Bowl real quick because
I don’t have much blood left to give.
That doesn’t mean we roll up the streets and board up the windows in RE/MAX Lakes Area Realty country after Labor Day…well, OK, some shops do…but we don’t, and the welcome mat will be rolled out all winter long in all four of our offices located in Nisswa, Crosslake, Alexandria, and Longville. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of things happening in our home towns this weekend. Below is a list of great things you can take part in. Have a great time everyone, and thank you for spending time in RE/MAX Lakes Area Realty country!
