I was driving back from Waterville and when I hit the Plantation I noticed a few Fairfield fire/rescue trucks heading in the opposite direction. I thought to myself, “This can’t be good.” When I got home I found out about the Amish Market.

Many thanks to the firefighters and rescue personnel. The building is a total loss. They had just reopened on Monday the 17th after being closed for two weeks for winter inventory.

Donations can be made to: Community Market, c/o Bishop Caleb Stoll, 368 Thorndike Road, Unity, ME 04988. There will be a bank account for donations set up very soon as well.

Wednesday the 19th was reopening day for the Amish Charcuterie, Unity Wagon Works and EMS Equine and Tack sales. Located on Leelynn Drive just off Thorndike Road.

With the loss of the Community Market, supporting Palmer Hill Farms and the other businesses in the community would surely be helpful to the community. Palmer Hill in Thorndike has plenty of milk, cream and fresh eggs.

Don’t forget the excitement of the Unity Pond Ice Oval races on the 29th!

It’s been a crazy busy week with my husband being unexpectedly hospitalized, Select Board meeting and a budget meeting. With help from family and friends I have managed. Thank you all for everything!
