Tonight’s Leavenworth Road Association meeting canceled

The Leavenworth Road Association has canceled tonight’s meeting at Eisenhower Community Center because of the weather.

Tonight, the temperature is predicted to be about 30 degrees at 8 p.m., which might have meant slick conditions with the possibility of refreezing ice in spots. The LRA meetings often run from 6 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.
