Dear Editor and citizens,
At the beginning of October the Relay for Life committee and Appling Healthcare System decided to join forces and Paint the Town Pink to promote breast cancer awareness, to coincide with the Breast Cancer Awareness Month during October. We started by Mayor Steve Rigdon signing a proclamation proclaiming the month of October as “PAINT THE TOWN PINK” month. The pink bows began appearing around the courthouse and down the sidewalk lamp poles. Businesses also joined us by purchasing a bow or two for their business. We would like to say a special thank you to everyone who purchased a bow to help promote breast cancer awareness and giving individuals the opportunity to decide (early detection saves lives) and to go ahead and get those mammograms.
