Relay for Life “Haunting for a Cure”

Saturday, Sept. 21, beginning at 1 p.m. at the Pike County Fairgrounds

Mike Reynolds, Master of Ceremonies will welcome one and all to Relay for Life – “Haunting for a Cure” – please plan to be there!

Opening Ceremony will include a message from Ginger Hodson from the American Cancer Society – Where does the Fund Raising Money Go?  It is a question asked often and the information is available on the American Cancer Society website, as well:   www.cancer.org

Bree Walker, Alece Walker, and Callie Watson, three lovely young ladies, will sing.  If you have not heard them sing prior to this, you are in for a treat.

The trick is to get everyone in the community to come out to participate in the activities.  A full schedule will be posted in the papers the week of Relay.  Here is a sample of activities available:

Side of Country Band, Richard Biggs, Donna Grote Biggs and Joey Sminchak will provide music; Face Painting by Sheri Lewis Grote; Survivor Photographs by Amanda Wilson; Boy Scout Troop 177 / Color Guard and available for various tasks throughout the event; Haunted House provided by Tom Thompson; Howard Street Dance Studio; FFA Horse Show; plus much more.
