Rex Whiteman, center, long-time director of the Union Mission, was a recent guest speaker at the Madison Rotary Club. He spoke about the advancement of programs that help people with physical and spiritual needs since the Union Mission was established 101 years ago by the late Pat B. Withrow after a donor gave him $100 to start a gospel mission. Withrow soon saw that there were physical needs to be met as well as spiritual ones and that led to the establishment of the Union Mission. Today, the Union Mission provides nine programs that help the homeless, the elderly, and persons with addictions. One of their priorities is feeding people and Whiteman said the Union Mission fed over 15,000 families last year, as well as many thousands over the holidays. Whiteman was introduced by Rotarian Dr. T. R. Barker, right. Rev. Johnny Barker, left, was also a guest of the Rotarians.
