Letter to editor on Relay for Life
Tama County Relay for Life will be held Friday June 12, at 6 p.m. through Saturday, June 13, 6 a.m. at the South Tama High School track. When the sun goes down, hundreds of luminaria light the way around the track. All the names on the luminarias will be read. The white sacks will have a candle light and the names who are fighting cancer, those who fought cancer and won, and those who lost their battle with cancer. Please help us light the way. We can add special messages and decorate the sacks or you can personalize the sack. These will have In Memory Of, representing the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, or In Honor Of, for those who face cancer and the support they receive. Our hope is that one day cancer will be eliminated. Please fill out a form and mail or call for a sack. Karen Symonds, 706 S. Main Street, Dysart IA 52224, 319-476-7762; Luane Lorenzen, 1438 T Ave., Traer IA 50675, 319-478-8823; or Cindy Roland, 300 S. East St., Toledo IA 52342. My personal goal is to have over 100 luminaries from our area. I am a cancer survivor and fighting back to help find a cure.
