York PA Labor Day Parade – September 7, 2015

York Labor Day Parade 2015
On Labor Day, which falls on Monday, September 7, members of the York-Adams County Central Labor Council (local affiliate) of Pennsylvania’s AFL-CIO – are preparing for the 26th annual York Labor Day Parade and Youth Fishing Derby at Kiwanis Lake. Themed, “Labor is America”, the parade’s route begins at Small’s Athletic Field on North George Street and finishes at Kiwanis Lake. The Grand Marshall will be a member of the Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors, and you’ll see your friends, family and neighbors – representatives from the many unions that represent York County’s workers – marching in their union colors. If your organization would like to participate, please contact Alan Vandersloot, Labor Liaison/ Campaign Manager at the United Way of York County, at (717) 771-3806.
The Fishing Derby is open to those between 1 and 15 years of age, with prizes awarded in two categories (children 1 to 8 years old, and children 9 to 15 years old). Registration and fishing begin at 8:00 a.m. with the Derby ending at 11:30 a.m. Participants will be able to see the York Labor Day Parade as it passes by. For more information on the Derby, call Nancy Stough at (717) 873-4458.
Union or non-union, York County residents should come to the Parade and enjoy the festivities. Last year’s Parade, featuring Commissioner Doug Hoke as Grand Marshall was a great time. And this Labor Day weekend will feature a whole lot more to enjoy, such as the 20th Annual Hanover Chili Cookoff on September 6.
