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.
