Classic cars, country music, farm fresh produce and family fun united to make the July 10 edition of Cruisin’ into Lockport a delightful event for all in attendance.

Every rider knows the best way to take to the streets is by motorcycle. So when an opportunity arose to embark on a motorcycle run with a pack of bikers, who all share the same goals in mind to raise funds and bring greater awareness to TLC Animal Shelter, the rest was history.
TLC Animal Shelter hosted its second annual Freedom Ride Sunday, July 9, in Lockport.
Lockport could have a new deep well on the city’s northeast side in coming years following initial discussion about design and plan preparation at the City Council’s July 19 Committee of the Whole meeting.
In the past, the City has done water studies, demonstrating the need for a new well to increase the City’s water supply and support future growth.
