Labor Day is more than just a day off from school and work. It is a great time to think about the history of the national holiday and its importance in America.
One of the traditions of Labor Day used to be the annual Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon. The star-studded variety show would last almost 24 hours. It entertained, informed and more importantly, raised funds for MDA.
In 2003, Clay Aiken was a guest on the MDA Telethon. He sang “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and received glowing comments from Jerry Lewis.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! But don’t forget that it is Labor Day!
