Relay for Life Survivor Social set for Sunday

Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Buffalo Island American Cancer Relay for Life Survivor Social will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Leachville Community Center.

All cancer survivors, family members and guests are invited to attend. Refreshments will be served.

The Survivor Social is a time to recognize cancer survivors and is held each year before the Relay event which will be held Friday, June 22, at the Leachville City Park.

Each year honorary cancer survivors are chosen from each Buffalo Island town to lead the first victory lap the night of the Relay.

The 2012 Honorary Survivors are Aletta Rose, Leachville; Norman Williams, Black Oak; Christy Fields, Monette; Harry Parks, Manila; Bob George, Lake City; and Leisa Couch, Caraway.

Buffalo Island Relay for Life chairman Brenda Matheny encourages everyone to attend the Survivor Social on Sunday and the Relay later in the month.
