On Saturday, the Pike County Relay for Life planning committee officially started the countdown to the county’s 2016 American Cancer Society Relay for Life event. This year’s Relay for Life will be held from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Aug. 27 at the Pike County Fairgrounds near Vera.
Relay for Life organizers planned a “Bark for Life” event in Bowling Green City Park, located on S. Court Street. In addition to cancer survivors and advocates of the American Cancer Society, attending the Bark for Life event were several vendors and dog enthusiasts from throughout the community.
