Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Okay, no jokes about the weather after last night’s freeze. Thankfully, our school kids are off on spring break and did not have to wait at the bus stop. Try to stay warm and think spring. This is Holy Week for Christians, the most solemn, yet joyous week of the calendar. As families gather to celebrate traditions, make sure you celebrate the time you have together.

Have you signed up for this year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life in Lockport? Cancer survivors at every stage of their diagnosis are invited to be honored guests. 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 questions, contact Kristina Groff at email@example.com or 689-6982, ext. 65249.
