“Welcome Home” will be the theme for the 45th annual Labor Day celebration Sept. 3 and 4 in Burdick.

Award winning folk and country music singers Maggie and Abigail Vogts of Erie will provide entertainment at 7 p.m. Sept. 3 on the tennis court.

The Vogts Sisters sing mostly original folk songs about coming of age in rural America. They have been performing throughout Kansas and in surrounding states since 2012 and have won many songwriting awards, including first place in the new song showcase at the 2016 Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield.

Maggie plays acoustical guitar, fiddle, and harmonica, and Abigail plays guitar and mandolin.

In case of inclement weather, the program will be at Hebron Lutheran Church northwest of Burdick.

A traditional worship service will be 9:30 a.m. Sunday at the tennis court. Sister Colleen Teeuwe of Hebron Lutheran Church will give the message. Everyone is asked to bring lawn chairs. Rolls and coffee will be provided by the Council of Clubs in the fire station after the service.

Monday activities will begin with an 8 a.m. fun run and walk. Coffee, homemade cinnamon rolls, and bread will be for sale in the fire station from 8 a.m. to noon.

Home business and arts and crafts vendors will be at the shelter house in the park all day.

A new event will be a turtle race at 11 a.m. in the park.

Burdick Hustlers 4-H Club will serve lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Musical entertainment will be provided. A pie auction will be at noon.

The highlight of the afternoon will be the 2 p.m. parade. Hometown Lutheran pastor Bill Peterson and his wife, Judy, will be grand marshals. To pre-register entries, participants are asked to call Bill and Jennifer Kassebaum at (785) 983-4407.
