Unity News

First of all, happy birthday to me, which will be closely followed by Donyse Higgins Babin's.

From the sounds of the weather report the "Witch of November" will be here tomorrow. I'm sure you're familiar with the line from Gordon Lightfoot's "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"; "...the Witch of November come stealin'..." The "witches" are caused by intense low atmospheric pressure over the Great Lakes pulling cold Canadian/Arctic air from the north or northwest. Batten down the hatches!

We've added a gallery page to the official town website. We still need more pictures. Show off your photography skills, show off your business or organization, show off your kids sports activities. Please send pictures to unity@unityme.org.

Free rabies clinic Nov 18 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Troy town office. Dogs on leashes and cats in carriers please.

If you are a Unity business or organization and would like to participate in the "Welcome to Unity" packet for new residents, we would like to include you. We've got some businesses doing coupons and some doing informational brochures/business cards. If this is something you'd be interested in, then please bring it to the town office by Nov. 17. We are making up 10 to start with.

Don't want to cook Thanksgiving Dinner? Mammie's Country Kitchen will be offering "to go" turkey dinners at $15 per person; that includes all the fixings. Any questions, call 948-1515. They also will be taking orders for pies and rolls. Please, if you are ordering, confirm and prepay by Nov. 17!

The Open Door will serve a complete dinner on Thanksgiving, Nov. 23, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Community Center. The Open Door is a ministry of Quaker Hill Christian and Unity Regional food pantry. Contact Bob  and Deb Menzone at 948-5237 or Richard and Bunny Moore 948 6232. A sign-up sheet will be available Thanksgiving week for a head count.

The second annual Unity Yuletide Tree Lighting will be held on Dec. 3rd at the Unity Historical Society at 4:30. More details to come as the Unity Area Business Exchange group firms up their plans.

If you're looking for an exciting healthy sport for your child that builds confidence, strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination while having some fun in the process please get in touch with the folks at X-Treme Gymnastics and Tumbling Center. Their phone # is 948-9482 My niece Amelia takes gymnastics there and I am always amazed when I watch those kids do their exercises.

Remember to send your news and events to penny@unityme.org.
