By now everyone is aware of the State of Emergency that has been declared by the Federal Government, State of North Carolina and Union County. The Town of Fairview is included in these declarations. As a result, the Fairview Park is closed until further notice, as are all Union County parks. For now, the Town Hall is open with regular hours on Tuesday and Thursday.
Union County Public Schools is providing free lunches to children 18 and under from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the following locations:
Wingate Elementary, 301 Bivens Street in Wingate
Health Sciences Academy at Monroe Middle, 601 Sunset Drive
Sardis Elementary, 4416 Sardis Church Road, Monroe
Rocky River Elementary, 500 N. Rocky River Road, Monroe
I would encourage all our citizens not to panic and to buy only the goods you need. There is no need to try to hoard items such as toilet paper, paper towels, sanitizer, etc. If you buy only what you need, there will be plenty for everyone.
I also encourage everyone to pay attention to suggested guidelines to avoid the spread of the Coronavirus.
Check on your neighbors, particularly those who are elderly. You may be able to help them shop for food or necessities or merely give them company and peace of mind.
Finally, Census Mailings have been sent out. Please make sure you respond to the Census. The Census is important in getting Federal Funds to local communities for schools, roads, and other public services. It also determines the number of seats that each State has in the US House of Representatives.
As always, please feel free to contact me at Pthomas@fairviewnc.gov
