Lunimarias For Relay On Sale

 By Glenda  Gordon

    Those touched by cancer know the dark times this disease can bring.

    But even amid the darkness, lights of hope and comfort shine. The American Cancer Society Relay for Life planned in Yalobusha County on April 27 is an overnight event that unites community members against cancer.

    One of the cornerstones of this important event is the luminaria ceremony where candles shine in honor of those who battle cancer, and in memory of those who have been lost.

    As Relay for Life participants walk through the night, the luminaria light their journey. If someone in your life has been touched by cancer, order a luminaria in their honor or memory today.

    Luminaries can be purchased at the Mechanics Bank by seeing Lynn Morris or by contacting the event chairperson Jonnie Mayo at 473-1897. They cost $10.
