I started doing more research on Union and its history. Tonight, I stumbled on to the Union Township Historical Society website. I wandered into the photos area. I saw pictures of then and now, famous Unionites, the Self Master Colony, and Revolutionary War era homes.
I found the Parks and Recreation folder. Looking at all the photos of Union events from years past was fun. I saw pictures of old rec league baseball teams with faces of classmates when they were single digit ages.
Then I saw a picture of a bunch of men sitting on bleachers, no big deal. Then I saw my dad…and tears. I forgot about his involvement with the rec basketball league. I forgot about all those Saturday mornings playing basketball, running clinics, refereeing games, and the Smarties stickers.
Thank you Union Township Historical Society.
