SHARON BRADEN - The night sky was lit up with lights and beauty during the final stages of Saturday's Relay for Life of South Clackamas County and Woodburn. The fundraiser is well on its way to its $110,000 fundraising goal.The Relay for Life event, which features Canby, Molalla and, this year, Woodburn, seemed to go off pretty well at its new venue at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm on Saturday, June 29.

"The tri-city cooperation was amazing," said Sharon Braden, one of the organizers. "This was a bunch of hard workers. Barb Iverson said that she loved the event and it was the easiest one they've ever done.

Braden said the attendance was good and that people seemed to enjoy the new venue and format, which interestingly enough did not include the traditional walking "relay" portion.
