UNION CITY — Union City Day is this Saturday. There will be music, food and yard sales including some "Made in Union City" items. I have heard that one of the music sessions will include folks from Union City Baptist Church with ukuleles. For yard sales, you can start setting up at 7 a.m. Saturday morning. It will be a great day to get out and meet your neighbors. Two raffles are underway, one is for a quilt handmade by Mary Sewell. Raffle tickets are available for several prizes including, a 32 inch TV, a Garmin GPS unit and Paula Deen Cookware. See a Ruritan member to purchase tickets.  Drawings will be after 2 p.m. All proceeds from both raffles will go to the floor replacement fund.

The Relay for Life dinner and auction was a full house event. Food was delicious and the auction created a lot of laughter and excitement.  Marty Sewell and Chuck Givens were the auctioneers for the event. The total amount raised for Relay for Life was $2,852. Thanks to all who made it possible.

This coming Monday at 7 p.m. the Ruritan club will meet for the May meeting. Dinner is at 7 p.m. and the business meeting is at 7:30 p.m.

Liberty Chapel will have the Third Sunday Singing this Sunday at 6 p.m. A group known as "Sweetly Saved" from Somerset will be the featured music for the evening. Everyone is invited to attend.

Happy Birthday this week to  Bob Conner and Tyler Loman, Friday; Morgan Day, Saturday; Billy Campbell, Sunday; Sue Long, Monday and John Hart, next Thursday.  If you have news or announcements let me know at 623-3880 or email
