Labor Day Holiday, Monday, September 7
MVA wishes everyone a safe and fun holiday!

Don't let COVID-19 ruin your Labor Day celebration. You and your household members can still do many things together like have a backyard barbecue, watch a movie (Mulan comes out this Friday), or read about the history of Labor Day together and why we celebrate it.

You can also celebrate with extended family via Zoom.
