“YoungLife is the place where I have grown to have a deeper and more intimate relationship with Jesus; the relationship I so longed for. Growing up in a Christian home, I didn’t fully understand what it meant for me to have a relationship with Him apart from my family. My YoungLife leaders, during my freshman year, showed me how I can have my own intentional relationship with Jesus. Because of YoungLife and my leaders, I was able to find my identity solely in Christ and bring others to His love. YoungLife not only became a fun place to hang out with my friends, it became the place I looked forward to every week. I would never have been so eager to pursue Christ if it weren’t for YoungLife Camp and my leaders that inspire me every day.” – Meghan W.

As a newcomer to Union County myself in 2014, I learned firsthand how difficult it can be to learn the area, find staple places, and make new friends – all while trying to get through the day-to-day of work and family. The opportunity to bring BeLocal to the fastest-growing county in the state of Ohio seemed like a perfect fit to help new movers in our great county.

Whether you are a newcomer who will use BeLocal as a great resource, one of the many contributors to the local recommendations, or one of our great business partners – you make this publication possible. Thank you!

Two local high school bands are participating in double header band competitions today. @marysvillemonarchband and Fairbanks Matching Band each brought home some big hardware from their first completions of the day! On to #2 as both head to Thomas Worthington tonight. Good luck!

I love our Marysville community. The Monarchs are playing their last regular season game tomorrow night at Olentangy. They’re asking everyone to wear blue to show their support in the loss of an Olentangy athlete earlier this week.

This is definitely a holiday we can get behind! 

Did you know the word dessert comes from the French “dessivir” which means to clear the table. Dessert is the meal served after all other foods & plates have been removed. 

Where is your favorite spot for dessert in Union County?

Today is the Grand Opening of Marysville’s newest hot spot @walkingdistancebrewing located on 8th Street. Owners Doug & Teddy have worked countless months to make their dream a reality and the space is gorgeous. Good luck to this addition to the Uptown area.
