Another Detour

August 1, 2022

On Sunday, Aug 14, two blocks of Main St in Sussex will be closed near the civic center and library from 9:00 till 4:00.  Those coming from the east can use Good Hope or Clover.  If you forget, though, detour down Silver Spring (just east of the Pig) and drive through the subdivision between the post office and church.  

The road work on the west end of Main St during August will not require detours.  The road will remain open during resurfacing.  There will sometimes be delays, so you may wish to choose another route on weekdays.

Detours

July 1, 2022

Main Street in Sussex will be blocked off for the Lions Daze parade on the morning of July 17.  If you drive to church on Main Street or must cross it, find a detour for Bible class and the 10:30 service that day.  

Likewise, on Sunday, July 31, Main St in Lannon [County F, also known as old Hwy 74] will be closed for the annual car show.  If you come to church via F, turn west on Plainview instead of on Good Hope or Main.
