Please share this with your neighbors: Union Township's Community Day is coming soon - SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 FROM 2-8PM at the Hunterdon Hills Playhouse. Township volunteers are working hard to make this the best Community Day ever. The day will end with free fireworks. Bring your blanket and chairs and plan to spend the afternoon and evening with us.
In order for Union Township Community Day to be a success for our township children, we need adult volunteers, over the age of 21, to monitor children using the inflatables provided for this event. We are looking for volunteers to give their time in one hour increments. If you can help for more than one hour we would appreciate the extra time. Please contact the Community Day committee and let us know your availability and best times for you by contacting email@example.com. There is also still time to advertise and/or set up a table for your group or business. Thank you for generously giving your time.
On Sunday, October 12, the North Hunterdon Education Foundation (NHEF) is hosting its first annual "Running of the Lions" 5K Family Fun Run/Walk at Spruce Run Reservoir!

Bring the whole family, as there will be lots of other fun activities at the event including face painting, a DJ and awards. Visit www.nhhsfoundation.org for registration forms and sponsorship opportunities.
As most of you are aware, the Union Hill condominiums, units 1-18, have been partially demolished due to the fire last November, and construction plans are being finalized. It remains unclear when the rebuilt units will be completed and residents allowed to return. Construction is estimated to begin in August.
Many of these residents have relied upon homeowner's insurance policies to pay for rent of alternate housing since the fire, and unfortunately some of these insurance plans are coming to an end. There are a number of former Union Hill homeowners, most single and several elderly, who are actively looking for housing in Union Township or close by. If you are aware of an available apartment, in-law suite or even a furnished room or two for rent to one of our fellow residents in need, please contact Dawn Carone, Access Property Management, at 908 806-2600 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dawn has graciously agreed to act as a clearing house for short-term rentals for the "Union Hill 18". Many thanks to Dawn and Access Property Management for continuing to work on behalf of our residents. If you have questions, please contact Mayor McBride at email@example.com.
