This year’s team and committee are asking everyone to join in the fight against cancer.
You can do this by simply purchasing a purple ribbon and displaying it at your home or work place.  These purple ribbons as displayed on this beautiful pine tree at the five-way stop can be purchased for a suggested donation of just $5 at KleinBank in NYA or Cologne.
If a ribbon isn’t going to work for you, there are yard signs available with the date of the relay this year and luminary bags that can be purchases for a $10 donation in memory or in honor of a cancer person.
There is still plenty of time to get involved with the Relay this year, beside the purple ribbons, the yard signs and the luminary bags, you can be on a team, a volunteer or a sponsor.  Just ask for details from anyone of the three tri-chairs this year:  Pat Zellmann – 952-240-2623, Kim Tellers – 952-467-3637 or Dar Mondor – 952-807-3136.
The date of this year’s Relay for Life is Saturday, Sept. 21 from 11 a.m. to midnight
Many thanks to Brent Aretz and his employees for placing new lights on the tree, which will be on 24 hours, since cancer never sleeps. Also for placing the purple bows on the tree for all to see.
