Adult Coloring

Union City Public Library will once again house the Coloring Club for adults on Saturday, the 21st at 1:00pm, which will be hosted by local artist Shannie Denney.

Vinyl Tap: A Second Saturday Event

Various Union City community leaders, organizations, and businesses are joining together to put a unique spin on a seasoned idea.

"Second Saturday in the CIty" is a new monthly event that brings together merchants, citizens, and out of town guests, to share in fun and unique gatherings that will vary from month to month.

At 9am, sidewalk vendors will be located on North Columbia Street, selling various crafts and food goods.

That same evening (exact times may vary), a special event will be held in downtown Union City.

The inaugural event, "Vinyl Tap" will take place May 14th, 2016, at Oak Street Antiques from 6-8pm. Guests will be able to stroll one of the regions premier antique shops, while sampling various craft beers. All the while,  a steady stream of vintage tunes will be playing through an antique Victrola phonograph.

Vinyl Tap is a free event, but a nominal fee will be charged for beverages.

For those wishing to stay out late, Union City rockers Dyslexic Funk will be playing a mix of Classic Rock and Country, from 8pm - Midnight at Firehouse Pipes, 226 N Plum St. It is a 21 and over show. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. Beer and Wine will be available for purchase.

 

UC Time Capsule

A UCN viewer reached out to us regarding a time capsule that was placed at the base of the flagpole in downtown Union City, in 1966. Supposedly, it was to be opened 50 years later. Does anyone have any information regarding when (or if) it might be opened? 

It was placed by the local Boy Scout troop. In fact, the gentleman that contacted us, Lee Grantham, was one of the Boy Scouts helping that day. Lee now lives in Wisconsin, but would like to be present when it is opened.

 

 

 

Union City Public Library will be trying a new program on Saturday, the 23rd, which will be hosted by local artist Shannie Denney. It is a coloring program for adults. It's something that has been growing in popularity over the last couple of years. It's aimed at adults because the designs to be colored (e.g. mandalas) are much more intricate than in a standard coloring book. We plan to do this at least one or two more times this year, and possibly more if the program is well attended.
