Purple bows will encircle Lincoln College and the Lincoln Square
downtown Lincoln (and any other creative idea) to highlight the
Relay campaign to raise donations with funds used to find a cure to
this horrible disease that has robbed so many of a normal life.
In May a Relay For Life Thermometer to record the progress of the
campaign will be across the street from Lincoln College.
At present 22 teams have registered. Past teams that have not yet
signed up and new teams to this year’s event can register at
org/loganil or by calling Carolyn Motley at 217-732-8032.
Survivors can also register online at
www.relayforlife.org/loganil or by contacting Tonita
Reifsteck (217-855-1645). Commemorative Purple Survivor shirts and
survivor pins can only be ordered for those who register prior to
the June event. If anyone has questions about their survivor gear,
those may also be addressed to Reifsteck.
The local theme for the Logan County Relay For Life this year is
“Rockin’ For A Cure.” Event Leader Cyra Buttell has announced
Cameron Kurtz will be the Master of Ceremony for the Relay. All
events this year will be on Saturday, June 18 at Lincoln College
beginning with a luncheon from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the
Davidson-Sheffer gymnasium of Lincoln College.
Tickets will be available from Relay For Life team members.

Luminaria are now available for purchase at $10 a bag to honor a survivor, a
caregiver, a medical supporter or to honor the memory of someone who battled
this disease. Luminary forms can be obtained by contacting Bill Post at 217-732
7564. The lighting of the Luminaria will take place at the relay at 9:00 p.m.
Meetings are held on the 4th Monday each month from 6 p.m. to 7: 30 p.m. at the
Lincoln Christian Church. Anyone interested in learning more, picking up forms
or being a part of this campaign are welcome to attend.
The next meeting will be on April 25th.
