Contempo Park

By Nelson Kirk

UNION CITY, Calif. -- The Latter Day Saints Tongan-speaking Church Group II from Union City volunteered at Contempo Park on December 15, 2012. They planted shrubs, trees and spread mulch. This is the third volunteer project the church has completed at this location; their work can be seen and enjoyed by park visitors and neighborhood residents. Many citizens walk in this park daily and will enjoy the spruced-up areas.

Public Works employees Alex Quintero and Jesus Banuelos set up and assisted with the project. Tracy Williams represented the church. Union City’s Public Works crews have reported less vandalism and graffiti in the park as a result of our volunteers’ efforts for continued improvements.

Union City's The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, commonly known as the Mormon Church, is located on Alvarado-Niles Road, next to City Hall. The congregation consists of two wards: a primary ward serving all members of the community and a secondary Tongan ward. The primary ward is led by Bishop Lee with services on Sundays at 12:30 p.m.; the Tongan ward is led by Bishop Tapueluelu and meets on Sundays at 9 a.m.
