Local 61 was proud to be a part of the 115th Annual Canton Labor Day parade again this year.  We were joined on our float by members from several of our locations and their families.  It was inspiring to see the turnout from the community after such a hard year for the town of Canton.  After the recent closure of the towns paper mill, Evergreen, which opened over a century ago and employed thousands of workers over the years. 

'This year with the mill closed, the parade felt a little different.  It was quite emotional,' President Mark Greene stated. 'We have always been proud to be a part of the oldest Labor Day parade in the South.'
