[April 27, 2013]  The Logan County Relay For Life is joining all of America in celebrating 100 years of saving lives and creating more birthdays through the efforts and research of the American Cancer Society, begun in 1913. Formerly the word cancer was not spoken, so almost all patients with this dreadful disease were lost.

On May 18 the Logan County Relay For Life teams will sell $10 luminaria bags at Lincoln IGA from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The luminaria will also be available at the annual Relay For Life Breakfast at Lincoln College on May 19 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. On May 22 these luminaria will draw attention to the 100th anniversary, as all of those purchased will be placed on the front porch of each participating home and lit at sundown to show support in helping to stamp out this disease in this century.

The luminaria purchased for this celebration will not be relit at the Relay For Life event June 14-15 at Lincoln College.

For more information, contact Bill Post, 732-7564; Tonita Reifsteck, 855-1645; or Nicole Lee, 828-1100.
