Relay is almost here!

Relay will be here in about 10 weeks so please turn in the following paperwork...

Participation form - that I need each person who wants to be part of relay ,to complete and return to me.  If you attended the dance there is no need to pay the $10.00 participation fee.

Luminary form - which you will notice are a little different than in years past.  You must now specify weather you would like your luminary in memory, honor or in tribute to.  The memorial picture idea I mentioned before has been scrapped.

Luminary sales count toward our team total, and are a very easy way to raise money.  I have only attached one luminary form but, please feel free to copy it or ask me for additional forms.  Why not ask family, friends or co-workers if they would like to buy a luminary or two. 

Suggested donation is $10.00 for each luminary.

Track Sign form - If you can get a business owner to advertise, or a individual or group to post a message on a track sign, for the price of $100.00, our team will be credited for that amount.

Survivor form – If you are a survivor, please fill out the form, and join us at the survivor reception.  If you aren’t, please give your form to a cancer survivor, and invite them to come to Relay.
If you need a copy of any of these forms, please ask Melita for a copy or check back in a day or two and copies will be posted here.

On the day of Relay there will be a lot going on and we could use your help.  Rita Lach has graciously volunteered to give massages to weary walkers.  Bev will be at the grill making pizza’s for hungry walkers, and off course we have to make funnel cakes and lemonade, and it was suggested if it is going to be hot we try fruit kabobs as well.  

So, we will need help making and selling those food items throughout the day.  It’s not fair to have only a few people do all the work.

Another area where we will need your help is with the luminaries.  Christine, Andi and I are on the Relay committee, and one of the areas we chose to handle is the luminary ceremony.  So we will need lots of help filling bags and setting them out around the track.  We are hoping many hands will make light work.

We have a few nice ideas for decorating our camp site.  Thank you everyone for all your input.

If you would like to dress up for the opening lap, you will need to make your own costume.   It was suggested we dress as characters you would see at a sideshow.

One last thing—please tell your family and friends about Relay and ask them to stop by on June 23rd and join in the fun.
