This is on the corner of Pearl Street and Stateline (circa 1935?), current location of the Post Office.
This year, Christmas in the City is a combined event with First Friday. The first Friday in December has traditionally signaled the opening of the gift gallery at the Depot that showcases the works of many of our regional artists. In keeping with that tradition we will be expanding this celebration throughout the downtown. You will find delicious treats not only at the depot, but also throughout the downtown. We want to continue the Arts in the City that began with Union City’s first ever Arts Festival. So as you stroll through the downtown stop in the businesses and enjoy a little music and artists creating new works! This is how the evening will unfold.
5:00-8:00 The Cookie Walk & pictures with Santa at the Community Room
5:30-7:00 Opening of the gift gallery at the Depot
7:00-9:00 Artists, Music and treats Downtown UC
Carriage Rides & Bus Tours of the Lights at Harter Park
9:00-11:00 Entertainment at the Pipes
This will be a fun way to open the season. It is a great night to bring family and friends to enjoy what Union City has to offer. Besides, you will find great gifts that can’t be found any other place except Union City, a home for the Arts.

The Dylan Williams Foundation gave out 6 AED's at the Community Room on October 22nd. Three AED's went to the champions of each age group at the Dylan Williams Invitational. 8 Under was Coldwater, 10U was Lynn, and 12U was Greenville. Two went to Versailles, Heritage Park & Ward Park. These were the result of the 5K Feel The Heat for a Cause. The last one went to the Centerville ball diamonds. Tommy and Amber York organized a fundraiser and to show our appreciation we donated the AED. Six AED's have a retail value of $15,000. This is now a total of 15 AED's that have been donated because of Dylan.
Team Dylan will once again be participating in the annual Bolt For The Heart 5K on Thanksgiving Day. For more info and to sign up please visit BoltForTheHeart.
