Coal Miners Day is a day to highlight all of the great amenities our community has to offer. This celebration brings everyone together through safe/fun memory making experiences. Many communities raise funds and awareness for many other organizations in our area.
This day was created as a day of reflection, when we can show appreciation for the sacrifices, honor the accomplishments and remember the tragedies that these hard working individuals experience.
Mining is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and the miners put their lives at risk each and everyday as they contend with health and safety issues as well as thei uncertainty of the future.
