SUMMER REUNION — A reunion is a great way to reconnect with people you may not have seen in a while. Christ the King School’s Class of 1968 will be holding its 50th reunion on Saturday, July 14.

According to the school, this is the first time the class will gather in 50 years, with many members not having seen one another since eighth grade.

The event schedule will begin with a Mass at Christ the King Church by Monsignor Paul Litwin at 4:30 p.m. The group will be seated in front pews together, recognized and blessed by the pastor. The rest of the schedule includes a brief tour of the church at 5:30 p.m.; a tour of the school and wine and cheese reception at 5:45 p.m.; and program conclusion at 6:30 p.m. The group will then move on to dinner.

• SIGN THE PETITION — Efforts are underway to fight an economic move that could threaten the viability of community newspapers. A single paper supplier, Norpac, is trying to manipulate the trade laws and convince the government to assess tariffs on Canadian imports of uncoated groundwood paper, which includes newsprint. Publishers and printers will not be able to absorb these tariffs and will be forced to cut costs that will ultimately result in fewer American jobs.

To register your vote in favor of reversing these tariffs, visit www.stopnewsprinttariffs.org. See ad on page 14.

REMINDER — Milling and paving has started on Crosspoint Parkway, and the project is anticipated to take around three weeks.

All inbound traffic on Crosspoint Parkway from Millersport Highway will be closed but vehicles may exit to Millersport. There will be one way traffic in from North French between the hours of 6 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Drivers are encouraged to use caution and obey the signs. Drivers should also plan accordingly and add minutes to their travel time.
