Two stages will be set up, with the main stage on the southwest corner of the courthouse Square and the other stage on the southeast corner, both facing back toward the courthouse. The main stage is being provided by RAGBRAI.


Walking School Bus volunteers needed



Volunteers are still being sought for the newly organized West Union Walking School Bus program.

As reported in last week’s Union, the North Fayette Community School District, Palmer Community Health and the Northeast Iowa Food and Fitness Initiative are teaming up to bring Walking School Buses to West Union this spring and are looking for volunteers to help. 

A Walking School Bus is a group of students walking to and from school with responsible supervisors. It is just like riding the bus…minus the bus!

For additional information and/or to volunteer, please contact Ashley Christensen, Safe Routes to School liaison for the Northeast Iowa Food and Fitness Initiative, at (563) 382-6171 or
