Relay For Life Takes First Steps Toward 2004 Event
The 2004 Scotland County Relay For Life took its first step January 28th with the annual kick-off meeting. With just over four months before the fundraiser takes to the Memphis City Square, organizers met to begin preparing for the event.
This year’s relay has added two new teams to the eight returning squads for a total of 10 teams. A total of 16 volunteers attended the first planning meeting for the 2004 event, which is scheduled for June 18-19.
District leader Brenda Carlin informed the 16 members in attendance at the meeting that the Scotland County Relay for Life was the second largest money maker in her region. Over all, the local fundraiser ranked 42nd among the more than 3,800 relay events in money made for the crusade against cancer.
“We really must commend and thank everyone who helped us do so well last year,” stated event chairman Diane Tague.
The group will meet again February 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the Antique Fair Building. Public support is still needed for the event. Anyone wishing to enter a team, join the committee or help in anyway is encouraged to attend.
For more information you may contact any of the following committee members: chairman Diane Tague, vice-chairman Phyllis Mallett, treasurer Kathy Gardner, luminary directors Beverly Moore and Leslie Troutman, or survivors organizer Chris Tinkle.
