Unity Township Supervisor Mike O'Barto said that since the start of the township's annual Heritage Festival, he has enjoyed teaching new residents the history of the area, while longtime residents reminisce about places and time gone by.

“We want families to come out and enjoy themselves,” he said.

The festival, from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday at the township municipal building on Beatty County Road, offers displays of historical memorabilia and Unity's eight fire companies.
