Working together

To the Editor:

Union — the volunteer town!

You lived up to your moniker at the Grassroots Festival last weekend. Spurred on by representatives of the Union chamber, many volunteered to help with the various details that made this a differently arranged fest covering the whole Main Street with high concentration of activity in the downtown area. Hooray!

Working together despite varying opinions on particular projects is what makes unity in Union possible. Let this be the beginning of all of us volunteering with the city, the chamber, Union United, our churches and organizations to improve our community and schools thus increasing economic sustainability.

Union groups have developed plans for carrying out many projects involving senior and low-cost housing, food insufficiency, community gardens, new stores, enhancement of parks and recreation, that would involve hiring of several people for each entity.

Many helped and supported those in need after Sept. 11. Be a proud responder making your life count with impact on the well-being of your fellow citizens in Union. Watch for opportunities to put your two cents into development of these exciting plans. When you give to projects, you feel life’s purpose!

Anyone can give up to four hours a week for the good of us all. Right?

Sue Briggs
