Survivors have been sent an invitation to this year's Survivor Dinner on June 15 at 4:30 p.m. in the old gym at Lincoln College. Survivors will be treated to this buffet, sponsored by John Guzzardo, and the Lincoln Strings will play during the meal.

Following the dinner, survivors will participate in the opening of this year's Relay for Life program at the new Lincoln Center on the Lincoln College campus, just off Ottawa Street and Nicholson Road. They will lead the survivor lap and will also receive a survivor shirt and a pin to add to their Relay for Life medallion if they have not already received it.

Any survivors not receiving an invitation can call the survivor chair, Tonita Reifsteck, at 217-855-1645, to register and get a schedule. All survivors are welcome to attend, even if they do not receive an invitation.
