The Unity Cemetery Committee would like to invite you to The Unity College Center for Performing Arts on February 8th at 6pm to see the award winning documentary A Will for the Woods. For years our committee has been asked about starting a green burial cemetery. Green burials are traditional and natural burials like those that took place before the funeral industry took over. Burial in a green cemetery is also much less expensive. Perhaps this documentary can help us all get started toward the goal of providing a green cemetery in our communities. February 15th has been set aside as a snow date. There will be no charge for the movie.
