The second annual National Tradesmen Day will be held on Friday, Sept. 21, 2012, and IRWIN Tools encourages all Americans to make plans to recognize America's tradesmen - the men and women who are the backbone of a great nation.
National Tradesmen Day, held each year on the third Friday in September, is intended to be a day when the nation pauses to thank skilled workers like auto mechanics, roofers, bricklayers, plumbers, woodworkers, electricians, carpenters, etc. During last year's inaugural National Tradesmen Day festivities, many people found ways to show appreciation and gratitude for tradesmen by holding celebrations, recognition events and activities throughout the country.
This year, IRWIN is coordinating multiple activities throughout the nation and is partnering with retailers and community groups for National Tradesmen Day celebrations. +
