The bike ride set for the Erie Waterfront and the Bay Front Connector on July 5 has been cancelled. For more information, call Pat Spicer at (814) 757-8331, evenings.

Holiday closing

Experience, Inc., the local Area Agency on Aging, and all senior centers in Warren and Forest counties will be closed Tuesday, July 4, in observance of the holiday.

Benefit fun run

The Christmas in July Fun Run/Walk — or crawl! — will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on July 29 on the Warren State Hospital grounds (starting at 44 N. State St.). We don’t care how you finish, just get across that finish line.

Along your 3.1-mile run, you’ll have the opportunity to pick up two fancily-wrapped presents to cash in at the end of the race. Who doesn’t love presents? Especially in July?!

For registering, you will get an awesome shirt, an unforgettable post-race smoothie and a chance to win prizes.

There will be local vendors for you to visit pre and post race, depending on when you start. All vendors will be set up outside. Please plan on bringing canopy or a weather cover to keep products dry.

The cost is $30 ($15 for vendors).

For more information on registering or donating, contact Lisa at (814) 779-8571 or visit the Facebook event for more information.

All proceeds benefit Bollinger Enterprises, Inc. (BEi).

Sobriety checkpoints

Warren County DUI Task Force will be conducting sobriety checkpoints and roving patrols over the holiday season. You may observe an added presence of police and traffic stops. Officers will be targeting impaired drivers for drugs and alcohol. Don’t be alarmed if you are pulled over for an equipment violation. Officers will be doing more aggressive traffic enforcement for the next couple of weeks. Distracted and impaired drivers will be cited, arrested and charged. Once again we ask if you plan on celebrating the 4th of July with friends, make it a priority to have a designated driver (DD) or stay home.
