The Town of Union's Sesquicentennial
The Town of Union celebrated it’s Sesquicentennial Birthday on October 15, 2022 from 1-4 pm at Town of Union Conservancy Forest, on White Pine Dr. The community was invited and those who attended were able to take a horse drawn wagon ride through the Conservancy Forest. Along the ride, residents shared Town history of how the adjoining Youth Forest came to be. Children from Union area schools planted trees every year to make it what it is today.
Others enjoyed a meal while visiting by the camp fire or sitting under the pavilion. Township Fire and EMS had their trucks for all to view, blood pressure checks were available for those interested and a hands on demonstration of the underwater rescue drone in the large water tank was a hit. Children also enjoyed a UTV ride from Township Fire Department and were able to take home a pumpkin.
At 2:30 there was a pavilion dedication honoring past park commissioners sharing their memorial plaques on the picnic tables. Conservancy History and future plans were shared and group photos were taken. Sara Norman from Landmark Conservancy led a guided hike through the forest trail system. The weather cooperated and event goers seemed to enjoy the neighborhood fellowship
