On Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2017, the Union City Lions Club celebrated Christmas with their winter Ladies Night.  The Lion's members and their guests enjoyed an evening that included a delicious meal prepared by Vicky Vinson and Allen Jefferis, and entertainment provided by the Unioin City Jr/Sr High School Chorus under the direction of Fred Elliott.  The High School Chorus sang a few Christmas songs and then the Jr High Chorus took their turn with some selections appropriate for the season.  Both groups then combined for a song.  The students did a wonderful job and the music was enjoyed by all.  The next Union City Lions Club meeting will be on Jan 9, 2018.




The Union City Lions Club held its second meeting in November on Tuesday evening the 28th.  A delicious meal was served by Vicky Vinson and Allen Jefferis.  The program for the evening was presented by Chris Shaneyfelt.  Chris oversees the Randolph County Emergency Management Office and the Randolph County 911 Call Center.  The 911 Call Center employs 13 people and is the communication center for all emergency calls in Randolph County.  Chris shared that the average time for a 911 call is about 90 seconds from call to dispatch.  The Office of Emergency Management deals with disasters, tracks hazardous materials, and works with weather-related events.  Chris also talked about winter preparedness and the county's travel level status plan.  Chris shared that the county is working to become a Weather-Ready County.  Anyone interested in getting weather warnings as they happen should have an app called 'Code Red' on their device.  You can follow the Randolph County Office of Emergency Management on Facebook and Twitter for more information.

The Union City Lions Club held its first regular meeting of November on Tuesday, November 14th.  The members present enjoyed a meal prepared by Vicky Vinson and Allan Jefferis.  The program for the evening was presented by Ted Martin from Winchester.  Ted brought his extensive collection of Indian Artifacts and talked about how they were made, what they were used for, and where he found some of them.  The artifacts were either found by him, purchased by him, or traded for.  Ted's collection includes many arrowheads, spearheads, knives, knife blades, and tools.  Ted also told us how to tell a real artifact from a recently made fake.  The Union City Lions were happy to welcome Ted, a member of the Winchester Lions Club to our meeting.  Thank you for a very interesting and informative program.

The Union City Lions Club heard from the Union City HS Boys Basketball Coach, Bruce Davison.  Coach Davison will be in his 1st season as the head coach of the Indians and he spoke about the upcoming season and some of his philosophy of coaching.  The team graduated about half of the offensive production from last year but has some starters back to build around for the 2017-18 season.  Coach Davison knows that coaches often have a big influence on their players, and hopes to not only teach his players basketball but also life skills beyond the game.  He believes that "disciplined people succeed" and feels self-control and accountability are important skills for his players to possess.  The evening started, as usual, with a delicious meal served by Vicky Vinson and Allen Jefferis.
