Labor Day Celebration
When Labor Day comes to mind, many correlate it with being an “end.” It is the final weekend that promises hot beach weather. It could be the last time the grill will be turned on to cook dinner outside. It even is a marker for a change in wardrobe, as some consider wearing white after Labor Day “faux pas.” Despite this, rather than viewing Labor Day as a bleak finale to the fun that was had this summer, it’s a time that should be spent savoring the final rays of sunshine… and of course, celebrating American workers!
A physical change in location can mean business growth for a company. Moving to a larger city can lead to more publicity, better connections, and overall success! However, employees must fill these new offices, and getting them there involves a much different transition for them than for the computers and desks they’ll be sitting at.
At 5th anniversary, Arpin Strong looks back on the causes it has helped
Arpin Strong is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a look back on the causes it has supported since 2013.
“Arpin Strong has had an amazing five years, raising well over $315,000 for charity and donating to about 150 causes,” said Michael Killoran, treasurer of Arpin Strong. “These numbers, while impressive, only tell a piece of the story. We want to use the special occasion of our fifth anniversary to revisit some of the causes we’ve touched.”
Thriftiness: the Oldest or Newest Fad?
How satisfying is it to find the perfect secondhand item that is a fraction of the price? Whether that is discovering a pair of shoes in your size that were never worn by their previous owner (basically new!) or an antique tea cup for your collection (vintage is so in) a sense of excitement occurs when one visits a secondhand store.
A Sustainable Summer
Summer is a time to embrace a carefree attitude, which is especially great if you are enjoying a well-deserved break from the demands of your typical routine. August is an excellent month to host summer barbeques and take day trips to the beach, to name just a few popular leisure time activities. It’s a lot to plan, and we encourage you to pause along the way to be mindful of how to live sustainably this season.
