Remembrance of Those Lost

Clark County Relay For Life luminaria service scheduled for June 18

(Kahoka, Mo) — A special luminaria ceremony during the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Clark County remembers those lost to cancer and honors those who have battled and won. The luminaria candle lighting to represent these individuals is on June 18, 2011 at approximately 9:00 p.m. at the City Park in Kahoka..
Anyone desiring to purchase a luminaria may do so by contacting Teresa Miller at Kahoka State Bank.. Each luminaria candle is $5.00.
“It will be beautiful when all the bags with candles are illuminated around the park,” said Teresa Miller, luminaria chair. “We hope to sell enough to light the entire area.”
Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event. Teams of eight to 15 or more members gather with tents and sleeping bags to participate in the largest fundraising walk in the nation. Relay For Life unites friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools and churches … people from all walks of life. Teams seek sponsorship prior to the Relay, all with the goal of supporting a cure for cancer.
Clark County cancer survivors will kick off the Relay For Life on June 18, 2011 at approximately 6:00 p.m. with the official survivors’ lap; then the rest of the participants will join the fun. Information about purchasing a luminaria, forming a team or walking in the survivors’ lap is available by calling Paula Fox at 660-727-3344.
