Triple digit heat on a Wednesday


Community Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times One of the great things about the Union County YMCA is the municipal swimming pool it operates on behalf of the City of Union. The pool at the YMCA — or any other pool for that matter — would have been a great place to be last Wednesday when the temperature got up into the triple digits. An even better place to be would have been inside somewhere with air conditioning. Temperatures like that kind of make you look forward to the fall, don’t they?
