SHERBURNE – Bob Tenney, President of The Mid-York Press, Inc., in Sherburne, has announced year-end retirement plans for long-time employee Lawrence Blackman.
Blackman joined Mid-York Press, Inc. right after graduation from Norwich High School, working first at the company’s location on Front Street in Norwich. Except for a two-year hiatus in the mid-60’s when he was drafted by the Army, his entire career has been with Mid-York Press. While he took a brief break from Mid-York, Blackman did not take a break from printing. His career in the service was behind a press in Japan where he printed propaganda leaflets that were dropped over Korea and Vietnam.
