We decided to compile a short list of reasons why we loved growing up in Union City. We could definitely come up with many more, but we would love to hear from all of you! Let us know some of the reasons why you loved growing up in our wonderful community. We shared a photo on the Union City Now Facebook Page with the saying, "I'm Proud To Be From The Hub Of Two States". Please comment on that photo with reasons why you loved growing up here and help spread some hometown pride!! You can also share your reasons at the bottom of this post in the comments section or use #unioncitynow on Twitter.
