Dream Big Union Bridge is an organization made up of Union Bridge residents who are working together to beautify and improve Union Bridge.

The group has been working diligently for several months to raise funds for two kiosks to be installed in town. The first kiosk, to be installed in the town square, will be dedicated at 10 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 2. Cheri Thompson, a member of Dream Big Union Bridge, said the community is invited to attend the event.


Several fundraisers were held including sub sales, a 50/50 raffle, basket bingo, and a coffee-paint night. Some of the materials were donated and some funds for the construction were donated by a member of the community.

In addition to the Kiosk Project, the organization hosted a Tea Party for the residents at Shriner’s Court, and donated funds to support the Elmer Wolfe Elementary 5K race, and FSK National Honor Society’s Secret Santa Project.

Said Thompson: “Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend our meetings/events. We have a great variety of people and everyone brings something special to the organization. …Together in numbers, we can make things happen!”

Dream Big Union Bridge meets at 6: 30 p.m. on the first Monday of every month at St James Lutheran Church, 14 S. Benedum Street, Union Bridge.
