Lockport Union-Sun & Journal

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning dear readers: How’s everyone this week? Yeah, I know, you are frozen and probably as sick of this weather as I am. A sure sign that spring is on its way is that you get to turn your clocks ahead on Sunday. That means that the days will be getting longer and warm sunshine will be here before you know it. And starting Friday, you can warm up with a fish fry dinner at the Wilson Fire Hall, from 4:30 p.m. to 7 Fridays throughout Lent.
