Maine rock and roll history will be made at Unity College on Friday, September 20, as Gary and the Pacemakers take the stage for the last time.

For over a decade, Gary and the Pacemakers, the faculty and staff band at Unity College, has been performing rock classics. Now the band is preparing to leave the spotlight and let the legacy of their achievements stand the test of time.

The final performance of Gary and the Pacemakers will be held at the Student Center on the campus of Unity College located at 90 Quaker Hill Road in Unity, Maine. The concert will take place from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Admission is free and open to the general public.

In recent years Unity College has gained national attention for a variety of achievements including: its focus on sustainability science, the leading-edge of 21st century ecological problem solving and the vanguard in the fight for the mitigation of global climate change; its ground-breaking “green” innovations such as the award-winning TerraHaus, the first student residence on a college or university campus built to the Passive House standard, the most energy efficient building standard in the world; and for being the first college in the United States to divest from investments in fossil fuels, igniting a growing national movement in higher education. Unity College has repeatedly received superior placement in the Washington Monthly magazine annual college rankings, including being named among the top baccalaureate colleges in 2013.

Unity College is a private college in rural Maine that provides dedicated, engaged students with a liberal arts education that emphasizes the environment and natural resources. Unity College graduates are prepared to be environmental stewards, effective leaders, and responsible citizens through active learning experiences within a supportive community.
