An Important, Life-Saving Weekend...

We received this note from a good friend of LCC, Barbara Thaw. Relay for Life is an amazing event, and one that touches so many of us, including some of the staff of Laughlin. Please consider supporting Barb and the rest of the Relayers with your presence, or your resources.

As we gear up for the biggest Quaker Valley Relay for Life EVER, the American Cancer Society's signature event, I thought to email out a schedule of events so everyone can see all of the excitement in store. If you have already received it, pass this copy along to a friend.

May 22nd (noon kick off) to May 23 (8:00 a.m. closing ceremony)
Quaker Valley High School Track

From several Live Bands to Zumba lessons ......... from Life Flight to the Survivor's Victory Lap ....... From the QV Marching Band to FIREWORKS ... From line dancing to the Survivor's Victory Lap .... From a dove release to the inspirational Luminaria Ceremony .....

We will have crafts and games and food and raffles. Please consider attending this most important event, rain or shine!! Sadly, we are all too aware that cancer knows no season, no age, no social status. Let's support our community and this most worthy cause.

Additional information - to donate - to join a team (it's not too late), go to QVRelay.org or send me an email. Hope to see you and yours on the track.
