Punch in for Labor Days Exhibit in East Jordan

See the Raven Hill/Smithsonian collaboration dedicated to local work
By Lynda Wheatley | Aug. 28, 2021

Just in time for Labor Day, Raven Hill Discovery Center’s collaboration with the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street (MoMS) program has unveiled Labor Days—A History of Work exhibit. In development between the national and East Jordan institutions since 2019, this labor of love delves into some stellar local history, highlighting the “who, what, where, why and how of Lake Charlevoix residents at work” but cooler yet, shows how their work fit within labor around the state and nation and traces the many changes that affected the workforce and work environments around Lake Charlevoix during the past 200 years. Labor Days opened to the public on August 14th and will remain open from 10am to 4pm daily through the end of September. Worth seeing alone or with kids, or as part of a (reservations needed) school or service group. (231) 536-3369,
