Hard to believe it is February already, and after that bitterly cold spell- I am ready for Spring! One sign of Spring is the annual Union Fire Fighter's fund raiser. This year's event will be a meat raffle, held Saturday Feb 17, from 2 to 6 PM at Clasen’s in Union - and YES the big drawing will also take place! Please look for signs around town and info thru social media! Proceeds go to purchasing of small tools and items for the Union Fire Fighters, as well as to the community in donations and scholarships. Thank you in advance for your continued support!

I want to say good job to everyone in the community as we have had less cold weather related emergency calls this year, with fewer Carbon monoxide (CO) calls, and no fires to report - great job everyone! We all still need to remain vigilant until Winter is over, so let’s all work together to keep yourself, your family and pets safe.

I am sure you have noticed that the weather has been unpredictably ‘unpredictable’. As the area begins to warm up, please be cautious of the roads, as many of the back roads are uneven, have large pot holes and the shoulders are unstable muddy traps. There has also been some dense fog - so please be safe and keep alert, especially in the morning fog as there are kids getting on buses.

Everyone enjoy your February, hope to see you at our fund raising event and don’t forget your Valentine!
