Relay For Life is a volunteer driven community supported annual event being held this weekend starting at 10 AM on Saturday June 9th and running through 8 AM Sunday June 10th.  It’s free for everyone. There will be games for the kids all day and a bounce-house/obstacle course, Holy Smoke BBQ truck from 12-5, Silent Auction 3-5:30, 50/50 raffle.  Veteran’s recognition will take place at 5:30 PM, Survivor Ceremony 6 PM & Luminaria Ceremony 9:45 PM.

If you’re not familiar with the program, Relay For Life is a team fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track or designated path. Each event is 6-24 hours in length and each team is asked to have member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps

Each team sets up a themed campsite at the event and continues their fundraising efforts by collecting donations for food, goods, games, and activities. This money will count towards their overall team fundraising goal.
