Kick-off for the 2011 Relay for Life in Sheridan will be held with a meeting set for Thursday, March 3rd from 5:30 to 7 pm at the Sheridan Senior Center. Spokesperson Lynnie Phipps tells us the need is great to put the June 24th Relay together.
Lynnie, who was the Event Chair for a few years, is assisting this year's leader, Carrie Brantz. Lynnie explains why she has personally been connected with the Sheridan Relay for Life for about eleven years in all.
Lynnie says that it's all about the teams getting out and raising money that goes to cancer research and prevention programming for the American Cancer Society.
The theme this year is Season of Hope. The informational meeting March 3rd will be a fun night with questions answered, games, prizes and refreshments.
