La­bor Day Sched­ule Sees Clo­sures, Sale

Escalon Times - - FRONT PAGE -

The tra­di­tional end of sum­mer, the long La­bor Day hol­i­day week­end, will bring with it some busi­ness clo­sures and the re­turn of a pop­u­lar an­nual event for the com­mu­nity.

Escalon city of­fices will be closed on Mon­day, Sept. 3 in ob­ser­vance of the La­bor Day hol­i­day; schools will be closed and there will be no mail de­liv­ery. All county and states of­fices are closed Mon­day as well. Busi­nesses have the op­tion of clos­ing.

Prior to the Mon­day hol­i­day, how­ever, res­i­dents and those just pass­ing through can stop in at the Escalon United Methodist Church to take ad­van­tage of the an­nual La­bor Day sale, put on by church mem­bers. The large rum­mage sale, with items do­nated by con­gre­ga­tion mem­bers, fea­tures ev­ery­thing from fur­ni­ture to elec­tron­ics, dishes to clothes, toys and more.

Hours for the an­nual two-day sale, Fri­day and Satur­day, Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, will be 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. The church is at 2000 Jack­son Ave., Escalon, at the corner of High­way 120 and Bray­ton Av­enue.

Au­thor­i­ties are also re­mind­ing res­i­dents that the fi­nal hol­i­day week­end of sum­mer is a Max­i­mum En­force­ment Pe­riod, when ad­di­tional po­lice pa­trols will be out on the lo­cal roads and free­ways, on the look­out for a va­ri­ety of of­fenses. From speed­ing to drunk or im­paired driv­ing, po­lice urge ev­ery­one to play it safe this long hol­i­day week­end. The MEP goes into ef­fect on Fri­day evening, Aug. 31 and con­tin­ues to early morn­ing Mon­day, Sept. 3.
