The eighth Project United has been scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 3.

The event is slated to run from 8 a.m. to noon.

Project United is a community service day sponsored and organized by the United Bank of Union.

Registration for the event starts at 7 a.m. at the Jaycee pavilion at the Union Fairgrounds.

Participants will receive a T-shirt, breakfast and lunch. Lunch will be served immediately following the event.

Project United was started in 2015. Twice a year, in the spring and fall, the United Bank of Union organizes the event.

Since it started, more than 900 volunteers representing 51 groups, businesses, and organizations have completed more than 50 unique projects and donated nearly 4,200 hours of voluntary community service.

Organizers are still choosing projects for the fall event.

Past projects include cleaning debris at city parks, landscaping, beautification and infrastructure painting of a number of Union R-XI School District buildings, citywide public area trash cleanup, painting and rehabilitating “Welcome to Union” signs, landscaping city roundabouts and the downtown Union square.

Crews also have worked on cleaning up Flat Creek from the fairgrounds to the Bourbeuse, painting and rehabilitating other city park infrastructure and painting assistance for the Union Food Pantry.

Registration can be done the same day or in advance. Advance registration must be filled out and turned in before Friday, Oct. 26.

All participants must be 18 years or older to volunteer or must be signed off by a parent or guardian.
