UNION — The future of a Town-owned complex of buildings in Union is the subject of an ad hoc group in that town. The Committee for the Future of the Thompson Community Complex (CFTCC) is working toward holding a town-wide facilitated meeting in the Fall to determine what the citizens would like to see happen with the property.
The formation of the committee is the result of a rejection by citizens of a proposal by selectmen to turn the property over to Penquis, at a vote in 2017.
The CFTCC will be holding a public supper and silent auction, to help raise funds, Saturday, May 18, at the Thompson Memorial gymnasium. The spaghetti supper will run from 5 to 7 p.m., with donated items in the silent auction on display and open for bids throughout that time.
Bidders do not need to be present to win. Items include a variety of gift certificates from local businesses, as well as items donated by businesses and individuals.
The funding for the meeting is independent of both the Town and the Thompson Community Center Association, which currently holds a lease with the town and manages the property.
A Facebook page has been developed, for information and to stimulate discussion: https://www.facebook.com/groups/289942898587984/about/ .
For more information or to donate items, contact Committee member Erik Amundsen at firstname.lastname@example.org; or call Martha Johnston-Nash at 596-9630.
