The snow is mostly gone and we have moved into mud season. Of course we all know that snow has a bad habit of recurring, enough to have to plow, and dig up the sod in the process.

I saw one of my old classmates (MVHS '85) at the Town Office. She and her husband recently moved to Unity so I immediately asked her what committee she'd like to serve on. She willingly agreed to the Scholarship Committee. Thank you Nan!

My forearms got a workout this week; I stapled together dozens of the 2020 Annual Town Report. If you're looking for one, try the following locations: Depot Store, Mac's Hardware, Town Office, or me. I try to keep a couple of extras in my car. You can also find a link for the online version at unityme.org or the CommUnity OpportUnity Facebook page. Many thanks to Kari for the hours of putting together all the information and warrant. Town meeting will be held Saturday, March 27, at 9 a.m. Registration starts at 8 a.m. Don't forget voting for one selectman position for a three-year term on March 26 from noon to 8 p.m.
