The Downtown Revitalization program and the Downtown Development Authority, in addition to the Union County Historical Society and local businesses' sponsorship and participation, worked hard to bring last night's Hometown Halloween on the Square to our beautiful downtown centered around the historic courthouse.

In this event, as with the Bluegrass Festival, the response from the community was tremendous. Thanks go our to each of you that helped make this event the success it was - both organizers and attendees alike.

As I made my way through the crowds last night, I kept hearing people greeting each other as they came across family members, acquaintances, former schoolmates, or church members. I was struck at how reminiscent this scene (less the crowds) must have been in decades past, when downtown was a destination - as a place of commerce, as a place of serving law, as a place of congregating.

As we've jumped into our cars so that we can get to many more places much, much faster, it bears remembering that we've lost something in the process. The Downtown Revitalization program isn't just about patching up building facades or adding beautification projects. It's also about bringing back the sense of community that was the mainstay of rural towns. These two events I think have done well to remind us just how much community is already here.

Mr. Bill, the pictures are great. I really like the slideshow feature; however, I was wondering if the timing can be slowed down a bit?

Hopefully, there will be some pics of the event later on.
