Two new businesses open during pandemic

Unity News

The long weekend has passed and we are into our last month of summer for 2020. Although it hasn’t been the summer we are accustomed to, it still has offered us plenty in a safe and distanced manner.

It has been a blessing in these cautious times to be able to enjoy walks and bike rides throughout our community’s walking paths and around towns, watching yards and flowers evolve and being able to distance visit others who are out for an afternoon or evening stroll or ride. Remember, when strolling or riding past any one of our senior complexes be sure to give a wave as they love the interaction with their community.

The theatre has re-opened with distancing rules and protocols in place. As well, it’s summer, so you don’t want to miss your chance at ice cream either at the downtown location or the mobile ice cream bike that makes its way around town daily and nightly while weather permits.

Don’t forget to continue your support of our community businesses, who have supported our events, activities and community for many years. We have seen many reasons to love local during this prolonged pandemic and the best way to say thanks is to return your support to them.

In spite of the pandemic, Unity has welcomed two new businesses downtown. Congratulations to Sam’s Family Hair Care and Wiggles and Whiskers pet supply store who both opened recently. As well, an announcement has been made that Lonestar Towing is opening up a business that will include repairs, inspections and other services in addition to towing.

If you are uneasy about taking your recyclables to Sarcan you have several options. You can use the drop and go feature, or you can allocate your returns to either the Unity United Church roof fund or Telemiracle, helping out a charity of your choice. Please choose to use recycling as an option rather than the trash.

Here’s hoping this finds you all safe, healthy and socially distanced. Until next week ...
