Chatterbox: It's time to 'think spring' throughout Barker area

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The countdown is on for our Barker students to start their spring break on Friday, and we’re all hoping for an increase in sunshine and temperatures leading up to Easter. This weekend brings Palm Sunday for Christians as they begin the holiest week of the year. Passover begins on Tuesday for our Jewish friends. Savor those traditions that bring families together. Enjoy the delights of spring in Western New York.

Have you signed up for this year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life in Lockport? There is a team informational meeting at 6 tonight at the Roy B. Kelley School cafeteria, 610 East High St., Lockport. Get all the information and materials you need to be a part of this event. Cancer survivors at every stage of their diagnosis are invited to be honored guests — please register this week for T-shirt ordering. Relay participants may walk in honor of a survivor who is physically unable to attend, by registering them at www.relayforlife.org/lockportNY as a “Virtual Survivor” and carrying a poster with a photo or tribute in the opening survivor’s lap at Relay. The survivor will receive a commemorative T-shirt after the event. For more information, contact Kristina Groff at kristina.groff@cancer.org or 689-6982, ext. 65249.
