Relay for Life on June 19th

Pandemic:  a disease prevalent over a whole country or the world.  Relay:  a group of people engaged in a task or activity for a period of time.  How are these two words related?  Though we are currently facing a new pandemic, there is still the continuing pandemic known as cancer.  To fight this pandemic the committee of the Fillmore County Relay For Life has been working to plan the 2020 event.

Since the way RFL has always been done will not work this year, the committee has come up with an alternative plan.  On June 19th we will be Cruising Against Cancer in 2020.  The details of the event are still being worked out, but we can guarantee food and fun.  Cruises have become the thing to do during this time so we are hoping to continue the excitement by having a large turnout that night.  Please stay tuned for more details to follow!!

We will still be selling luminaries for the event.  You can order them online or contact Laura Weaver (Weaver Repair), Pat Mau (Heartland Bank), Jackie Swartzendruber, Kati Jones, Kaela Lockhart, or Denice Kovanda.  We can either deliver them to you to make yourself or you can ask us to make them.  Because we are having our event over a month early we will need them to be purchased by June 15.

Corona may make us plan differently, but it cannot stop us from honoring our survivors and doing what we can to fight cancer.  Please plan to join us on June 19th.  If we can answer any questions, please let us know.
