Union County Annual Four Centuries in a Weekend Activities Cancelled

Union County, NJ – The County of Union today announced the cancelation of this year’s Four Centuries in a Weekend celebration, due to the COVID -19 pandemic. The event was originally scheduled for the weekend of October 17 and 18.
