Those who were here would have been able to take a trip back in time to Buffalo in the 1950s and 1960s and enjoy good food and music along the way; join our community’s young people for the spiritual uplift of this county’s first-ever Christian Youth Rally; attend a concert to enjoy some good music and the opportunity to contribute to autism research; shop at a flea market; and even fight cancer while getting a haircut. Let’s not forget the weekend got off to a great start with Friday night’s football game that saw the Union County High School Yellow Jackets sting Greer, 28-22.
Yes, like so many previous weekends, this past weekend Union County was the place to be for good, wholesome family fun that celebrates our community while providing opportunities to make a positive contribution to the county and to help those in need. What’s even nicer is that these activities — like those of previous weekends — were wholly or partly organized locally.
Our county is blessed with citizens who can pull together to establish and organize festivals that celebrate its constituent communities; rallies that seek to improve moral and spiritual well-being; and give of their time, energy and abilities to raise funds for the research and treatment of illness and other medical conditions. This weekend was just the latest example of this positive, community-oriented, can-do spirit and proof that, more times than you think, there’s plenty to do and much to enjoy in Union County.
