Labor Day. A time to be thankful for all the men and women who gave us the weekend, 40 hour work week, overtime pay, and many other things that keep us out of third world status. Labor day weekend also signifies the closing of the pools in New Town. Before kids, we did not utilize these amenities as we probably should have but now it is part of our weekly lives during the summer. During the end of the season the real hidden gem is weeknights between 6-8pm…after a long day at work and school it’s a welcome treat. Sometimes we even get the place all to ourselves. The closing of the pools signify the end of the summer. End of the travel season. Start of school and the long slide into winter. Boo.
