Black fly warning! They're out and they are hungry! My poor husband gets huge welts when bit. They don't care for my blood; I'm either too sweet or too sour, depending on your view.

My husband and his guy friends have been hard at work prepping a Late Model Sportsman racecar for competition at Wiscasset Speedway. Brad Bellows and Mark Dodge, both former Unity Raceway champions and rivals, have teamed up for this effort. Wiscasset puts on a nice show with a general admission ticket of only $5.

The boat launch is in the water at Kanokolus. No fee for Unity residents and/or Unity taxpayers. Non-resident boat launch fee is $10/year or $2/day. You can pick up your annual permits at the town office. Swimming lessons will be held the last two weeks of June. More details to come, but once again we will be inviting children from surrounding towns to participate. I'd like to thank Larry and Betsy King for building a nice sandbox for the play area at the beach. We have not put the play equipment out yet, but will be doing so pretty soon. Picnicking at the beach is always free to everyone.

The annual pancake breakfast fundraiser for the Volunteer Regional Food Pantry will be held Saturday, June 16, from 9-11am. $5 for adults, $3 for children. This is an awesome breakfast; I encourage you to attend!

The Unified Riding and Driving Club qualified for a grant to make improvements to the horse show ring on the Prairie Rd. in Unity. The ring has been in disrepair due to the age of the structure. The footing, which is very important to the safety of both horse and rider, will be improved as well. The first show of the year will be a youth (18 and under) game show held on May 26. FMI call Kathye Monroe 568-5028. You can also follow their FB page.

Remember those old shaker "exercise" machines, where you put a belt around you and it would make you shake all over? I know our gravel roads are a lot like that right now, but that will be fixed next week when the grader comes.

Chris Kein of Unity does some amazing woodwork. You can check out his wares on the website, www.oneofakein.com.

Congratulations to Jim Buckle and Hannah Hamilton on the purchase of the Buckle Farm on the Fisher Rd. Two very hard working young farmers who grow quality organic produce, flowers, and pork. FMI: www.bucklefarm.com.
