Senior Appreciation Luncheon planned

The Streetsboro Area Chamber of Commerce also is hosting a Senior Appreciation Luncheon May 7 from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m. The time change from most luncheons is to accommodate the testing schedule of more than 30 Streetsboro High School seniors, all with grade-point averages of 3.5 or higher, who will be joining area business leaders for the luncheon.

The keynote speaker will be District 75 State Rep. Kathleen Clyde.

The Chamber is working to raise $2,500 by the end of April to help fund future scholarships and the Senior Appreciation Luncheon. To register, call the Chamber at 330-626-4769.
