Union City Homemakers meet fourth Tuesday of month

UNION CITY — The Union City Homemakers club has changed its meeting time to the fourth Tuesday of each month. The next meeting is 7 p.m. Oct. 22. For information, contact Mary Louise Sewell at 623-9369

The next Ruritan meeting will be 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21. As with any organization, having all members attending and participating brings accomplishments.

Thanks to all the volunteers who came out last Saturday night for the Ruritan fish fry. At this event, the fish type was changed to catfish, and there were some positive comments that it was better. If you have any opinions, let a club member know.

The annual Halloween party will be Saturday, Oct. 26, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Donations of candy and baked goods will be needed. For more details, contact Marty Sewell.

Did you know?

Madison County Schools started busing students 100 years ago this week. Following is a quote from  Richmond Climax of Oct. 21, 1913. “An experiment in hauling children to rural schools has been inaugurated in this county. The Board of Education has bought a wagonette and carry the children of the Runion Grove school to the high school at Union City. This is experimental. The school house at Runion Grove was destroyed by fire, and the children of that school will be carried to the Union City High School. This experiment has been tried in other states and has worked to the satisfaction of the patrons. In fact in some states the experiment of carrying the children from the city out to the country has been tried out and found to be satisfactory. Ample grounds can be secured in the country at low prices and the children are relieved from the hemmed up surroundings of the city and are given fresh air each day.”

From now on, when you see the big yellow buses, you will know it all started at Union City!

Happy Birthday to Hannah Weckman, Friday; Lisa Gabbard and Bobby Masters, Monday; Ashley Blevins, Tuesday; Von Parke and Adam Risk next Thursday.

If you have news or announcements, let me know at 623-3880 or email

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
