    Thoughts From Our Minister

    A Sizzling Summer

    Dear Unity Family,

    What is your favorite summer activity? Perhaps it is getting together with family and friends for a summer picnic, relaxing and reading a good book, listening to your favorite music, or experiencing something new and different.

    This July and August we have a variety of sizzling summer activities to entice you to participate with your Unity family - everything from an outdoor Sunday service/picnic at Memorial Lake to a Sound Healing Experience to the music of Frank Sinatra.

    As you discover the opportunities within the pages of this newsletter, mark your calendars for a summer of fun, food for your soul, and fellowship!

    Happy Summer!

    Rev. Julie

    Hospital, Ephrata Community Hospital, Hanover Hospital and several other area hospitals.

    What do they all have in common???

    They are all served by the Central Pennsylvania Blood Bank for their blood needs. Perhaps a loved one, a

    neighbor or a friend was admitted to one of these medical facilities, and it is most likely they .1 out of 7

    do.received several units of life saving blood during their hospital stay. PACC Palmyra-A Caring Community

    sponsors a local Blood Bank and Unity Church is a long time supporting PACC member. So if you are able and

    willing to be a life saver with your blood, please consider joining the hundreds of your Palmyra area neighbors

    that make a blood donation throughout the year. Its easy and only takes about an hour of your time to be that

    life saving neighbor. If you have questions, please contact Ron Fouche at 838-2569 or 838-6336 Extension106.

    Thank you for your support and blood!!!
