Happy birthday to my red-headed niece Meredith. We're going to lunch at Governor's and having a big fat piece of chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. She'll be headed back to St. Joseph's College this weekend.

It's time to start making plans for the 2018 Unity Festival. Do you have any ideas? Things you'd like to see? Can you volunteer to help? The first meeting will be coming soon. If you'd like to join in please let me know.

Chase Toys has been extremely busy. New sleds, great inventory of used sleds, plus all the essential gear. They also sell other important winter related items such as snow blowers and generators.

There is a Maine law that states "A person may not place and allow to remain on a public way snow or slush that has not accumulated there naturally." f you must plow snow across a public way you need to make sure that you clean up whatever snow has been left in the road and do not block the right of way.

My husband took a vacation day to go out and ride his snowmobile. He's been too busy fighting snow, or working on trails and trail grooming equipment, that he finally took a day to ENJOY the snow. The Snow Dusters always can use additional members and help with keeping the trails open so that everyone can enjoy them.

The Unity Cemetery Committee would like to invite you to The Unity College Center for Performing Arts on February 8th at 6pm to see the award winning documentary "A Will for the Woods". For years our committee has been asked about starting a green burial cemetery. Green burials are traditional and natural burials like those that took place before the funeral industry took over. Burial in a green cemetery is also much less expensive. Perhaps this documentary can help us all get started toward the goal of providing a green cemetery in our community. February 15th has been set aside as a snow date. There will be no charge for the movie.

The Town of Unity does not have an official Facebook page. However we do often make announcements on the Unity, Maine Citizens United page. If you're not a member and live in Unity (or have roots in Unity) and would like to join send a request.

Congratulations to Blaine Parsons, who has been selected by the Unity Fire Department to take over the role of Chief. It's a huge responsibility and we are glad he is up for the task.

Yoga! A six week session starting Sunday Jan. 14th at 8:30am at the Community Center. A great way to exercise during the winter months.

Empty Bowls 2018 will take place on Tuesday, March 13th at the Unity Food Hub. This collaborative event between UBR and Veggies for All benefits the Unity Food Pantry. They need beautiful bowls! If anyone is willing to donate, please contact Mary at 948-9005 or programs@unitybarnraisers.org
