Relay plans survivors luncheon

The Jefferson County Relay For Life will be held this summer on Saturday, July 13, and Sunday, July 14. This is a major event for Jefferson County and the American Cancer Society, and its ability to raise funds to help support those fighting cancer within our county.

The Jefferson County Relay For Life committee invites all cancer survivors and their caregivers to an afternoon of recognition, support, and a celebration of the many cancer survivors residing in Jefferson County. This event will be held on May 19, at 2 p.m., at the Jefferson County Senior Center.

"The committee would like to see all Jefferson County survivors, and their caregivers, at this event. We have over 150 survivors living in this county, so think about what a celebration that would be if all attended," said Alice Satterlee, committee member.

Organizers urge everyone to attend the celebration. Family, friends, and other Relay team members, will also be attending the event, so it will be special.

A light luncheon, with tea, and coffee for all attendees and musical entertainment will be provided. Mark your calendars and make this a day to remember.
