Auto RepairLetter to captains for Relay For Life of Logan County:

Are you all getting your teams ready for the Relay For Life this year? I hope so. It's looking more and more like it will be a great year for us. The committee leaders have pulled together, and several captains have joined those committees to help us through a challenging year. Thanks so much to all of you for your help and support so far this year!

We still have a couple of weeks to go on this journey though, so I wanted to give you some highlights from our previous captains' meetings to help you communicate with your teams, in case any of you have missed anything. Here are the items to remember:

Health Care

Dates to remember:

  • May 14 -- Relay Day at Culver's. Culver's donates 10 percent of its proceeds for the day (10:30 a.m.-10 p.m.) to the Relay For Life of Logan County.

  • May 15 -- Bank Night at Regions Bank in Lincoln. T-shirts will be handed out at that time.

  • May 17 and 18 -- Relay For Life, 11 a.m.-1 a.m. at Lincoln Christian College.

  • May 18 -- Post-relay brunch at Lincoln College, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society ($8/adults; $4/children). Pre-sales of tickets are occurring now.


Pre-relay info:

  • Each team is encouraged to bring a silent or live auction item or basket to City Hall before May 17 or on the day of the relay to Lincoln Christian College

  • Encourage team members to turn in luminaria forms early to allow time for getting all of the names written on the bags.

  • Brunch tickets are available at the team captains' meetings for pre-sale purposes. See Ellen Barmes.

  • If you have any people that you would like added to the survivors list, please get that information to Susan Gehlbach, or e-mail me back at this e-mail address (dennis.cooley@insightbb.com).

  • Please, register your team online, if possible, at our website: www.relayforlifelogan.com.

Relay info:

  • Team campsite themes are encouraged on the day of the relay. Prizes will be given for first and second place. Look at the website for thought-starters.

  • Teams are encouraged to do any on-site fundraisers that they'd like.

  • Relay day schedules are being developed and will be made available at team captains' meetings.


If any of you have any questions about the Relay For Life of Logan County, please attend the captains' meetings or feel free to e-mail or call me. I would be glad to get your questions to the right person.

Thanks so much for all that you do! You truly make a difference!!
