LYNN TOWNSHIP: Jacob’s Church hosting Community Day, Sept. 30

Wednesday, September 13, 2017 by BERNADETTE SUKLEY in Columns

School is Open! Kids are back in school and for us in Lynn that means different traffic patterns and maybe a longer commute.

Bus stops are not always marked, so drivers are urged to use caution on all routes.

Also, many kids are just getting their licenses and their driving skills aren’t up to par yet.

So patience, seasoned drivers. Remember when you were 16?


Jacob’s Church, New Tripoli, will host a Community Day 4-8 p.m. Sept. 30.

Come enjoy a night out with free activities for the entire family.
