Labor Day Events in South Carolina

August 29th, 2013

Labor Day is a holiday we at TRUE Group hold near and dear – and with good reason!

Each year, the holiday allows us to honor hard-working Americans and the contributions they have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our nation.

So today, we’re taking a break from our normal post format and presenting a few interesting facts about Labor Day – as well as some local Labor Day celebrations throughout South Carolina.  Enjoy!
