Ohio Coal Miners Week

State Representative John Carey (R-Wellston) has announced the passage of House Bill 207 (2011), which designates the week in which Labor Day occurs as Ohio Coal Miners Week.
The designation is intended to honor the citizens of Ohio who have worked and continue to work in coal mines in the state. The legislation originally designated the first week in April, but Representative Carey offered and received favorable support to change the date to coincide with the annual Wellston Coal Festival.
“Every year the week of Labor Day, citizens of Wellston celebrate their rich heritage of coal mining during the Wellston Coal Festival,” Representative Carey said. “It would only make sense to designate that particular week in honor of Ohio coal miners.”
The Wellston Coal Festival is held the Tuesday through Saturday after Labor Day on the downtown streets to celebrate Wellston’s rich coal mining heritage. We offer a Karaoke Contest, Coal Miner Olympics, a Wednesday Hometown Parade and a Saturday Grand Parade, Baby and Toddler Contests, Car and Motorcycle Show, Pet Show, Line Dancing, Free Entertainment nightly, Rides, Games, Great Food and down home hospitality. Bring your lawn chair, spend the day - or several, and enjoy the old fashioned small town hospitality in historic downtown Wellston, Ohio.....Everyone’s Hometown since 1873.
ORC: 5.2272 Ohio Coal Miners Week.
The week in which Labor Day occurs is designated as "Ohio Coal Miners Week" in honor of the citizens of this state who have worked and continue to work in the coal mines of the state.
(Added by 129th General AssemblyFile No.116, HB 207, §1, eff. 9/5/2012.)
