This weekend in Unity you can take in the action at the rink, which includes the tail end of the Pattison Ag Men’s Bonspiel as well as the initiation hockey tournament on Saturday, Jan. 25. These activities are combined with a number of other games, including some teams now starting playoffs for both league and provincials.
The Midget AA Lazers will play at home on Feb. 8 and 9, so let’s pack the stands as a show of support for this 30-year prpgram. The team and coaches deserve our respect and thanks. Rather than finishing off their regular season lamenting what is being lost, let’s help them celebrate this season.
If you missed “Battle of the Blades,” you can purchase a DVD of the event at the Unity Community Resource Centre. Ask for Kristi.
Check with any Unity Kin Club member, Unity Motor Products with Bryce or What the Float with Nora, to purchase your tickets for the Feb. 14 Sweetheart Soiree benefiting Telemiracle 45. Will Ballantyne will be performing on the telethon.
Unity Composite High School staff and students continue to fundraise for Telemiracle, with one class holding a fundraiser each month.

Deadline for nominations to be sent to helena@helenalongcom is Jan. 27. The Celebrate Unity event will be hosted March 2.
Don’t forget about your local food bank this time of year. The need is still there but, without scheduled food drives, supplies tend to dwindle.
There are only 10 more days to see what the groundhog has to say about winter. Here’s hoping the milder weather from December returns and we are counting down this dreadful season in matter of weeks rather than months. Stay tuned folks.
