Welcome to Merridun's Blog
Let's try to get with the technology world... My newsletters are way behind because I want to give you 2 pages of "perfection", so I keep waiting until I have enough to say--and haven't written one since Jan-Feb 2010..
I hope the blog will allow me to give you the latest tid-bits of information from the Inn; offer last minute specials; share a new recipe; or just chat.
Upcoming things to do in Union include:
Union County Fair Oct 19-24
This annual five-day event takes place at the Union County Fairgrounds and is guaranteed to offer fun for everyone! Great music, lots of food and some of the best entertainment in the region makes this event worth attending year after year. For more information on this year's festival, visit www.unioncountyscfair.org or call (864)427-6259.
