Union Square is the young professional arm of the Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce and strives to organize events to educate residents about local services and resources and engage them in events to enrich participants and showcase our vibrant community. Membership in the group is free and open to anyone — “young” is a highly subjective term, after all! Union Square runs events for pure enjoyment (with a little competition). Union Square ran an adult dodgeball league, holds an annual costumed race at Woodlawn Museum – The Dead Run, and in 2015 held Ellsworth’s inaugural Great Golden Keg Hunt, a scavenger hunt that led teams throughout the city to various stores and landmarks to solve puzzles, complete tasks, and win prizes.
All of these events play a part in exploring the experiences, places, and relationships that blend family, work, and play.
