Guam - To celebrate the hardwork individual this year's Labor Day festivities will be held on Sunday, August 31st at Ypao Beach Park from 10am to 6pm. Event chairperson Jesse Alig says the event will kick off with the table decorating contest themed "stars". Eleven agencies have entered and will be judged at 10am followed by food, family, and fun as 12pm will signal the welcoming and blessing of the food. At 2 pm directors and deputy directors will be called out to participate in a coconut husking contest then at 3pm the tug-o-war begins with agencies squaring off to see who has the muscle. Throughout the day Mt Carmel's Phoenix Band will be providing entertainment. Alig says that satellite parking will be available at JFK with shuttle service every half hour. Finally, recycling efforts will be in full gear as each agency is asked to separate trash into categories aluminum, plastic, and green waste.
