Last Gasp of Summer: Looking Forward to Labor Day Weekend

Drat. Summer is almost done.

Schools go back next week, at least those who aren’t on year-round schedules.

Labor Dayis upon us here in West Michigan, which means one long, last weekend of summer and more time off for the rank and file.

To help be prepared for the holiday weekend for Labor Day, which is Sept. 1, here’s a list of federal, state, county, city and local closings:

  • All federal, state, county, city, village and township offices: closed.
  • State unemployment offices closed, but MARVIN will still be running.
  • U.S. Postal Service offices and branches: closed.
  • Public schools: closed; regular academic year for most schools starts Sept. 2.
  • Michigan state parks: open.
  • The Rapid: closed, no buses running.

  • Veteran’s Day — Nov. 11, a Tuesday; the official federal holiday is Nov. 10, a Monday.
  • Thanksgiving — Nov. 27, the fourth Thursday in November.
  • Christmas — Dec. 25, a Thursday.
