THE MONUMENT IS COMPLETE!!
You are invited to the dedication of the new Veterans' Memorial on the Unity Town Common. This Dedication will take place on Sunday, November 8th, so that more people will be able to attend.
The Unity Fire Department has graciously offered to have free hamburgers and hotdogs at noon. There will be a few military vehicles to check out. The Dedication will begin at 1:o0 pm.
The Honor Guard from the Newport American Legion will open the program. The American Legion will be bringing their cannon.
After the opening ceremony we will move inside the Town Hall for the remainder of the program. This will feature essays from the Unity elementary 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, a key-note speaker, and a re-en actor from Fort No. 4; who will give a short, interesting talk on the muskets used by our first Unity residents.
Unity has had many men and women volunteer to serve our country over the years starting with the Revolutionary war. The Historical Society and the Town of Unity are honoring them with a beautiful black granite monument.
Keep in mind that you can still purchase a brick dedicated for you or your loved one(s).
Please see below for this information.
Unity Historical Society is building a new Veterans Memorial
It is planned to be a black granite 2 sided monolith. The monolith is to be set on a granite base upon a brick patio with flag poles, on the Unity Town Common.
As a fundraiser, we will be selling bricks for $40 each with 3 lines of text or $50 each with 3 lines of text and a clip art image. Over the next year, we will be looking to the people of town to help by donating, volunteering or purchasing bricks.
The project dedication date is November of 2020.
