Relay for Life Friday night

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

The annual Buffalo Island Relay for Life will be held Friday night at the Leachville City Park. There will be entertainment, food booths, games and a silent auction.

Cancer survivors will be recognized and will take the first lap around the walking track. They will be joined afterwards by family and friends. Activities are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

Teams are welcome to join the Relay for Life.

The track will be lit with luminaries purchased in honor of cancer survivors and in memory of those who have lost their battle to cancer.

Chairman Brenda Matheny invites citizens from across Buffalo Island to come out and support the annual event.

This year's theme is a birthday celebration in recognition of the American Cancer Society's 100th birthday.
