Labor Day in AuSable Forks

To the editor:

The Catholic Community of Holy Name and St. Matthew’s, AuSable Forks, announces its annual celebration of Labor Day for Monday, Sept. 2.

A major part of this celebration and an AuSable Valley tradition is the Labor Day Parade with this year’s theme: “Adirondack Luau” (theme optional). Once again the parade will line up at 9:30 a.m. on Palmer Street and begin at 10 a.m., moving down Main Street to the reviewing stand near the Holy Name Church, where the parade will conclude.

We are seeking organizations, groups and individuals to march in this year’s parade. If you have a float, antique or classic automobile, or other interesting item that you would like to display in the parade, we invite you to contact Mr. Norman Hatch, who will be setting the lineup for the parade. You will need to contact him before Aug. 20 so that he can establish the lineup list that is used to announce the participants in the parade from the reviewing stand. Last-minute arrivals without reservations will be placed at the end of the parade.

Please contact Mr. Norman Hatch, at P.O. Box 31, AuSable Forks, NY 12912; phone: 518-647-5783.

I pray that you have an enjoyable summer season, and may God continue to bless you and your family with His peace and joy each day.

In Christ’s service,

Rev. Kris C. Lauzon
