The Appling County Chapter of the Relay For Life held their annual Relay For Life Walk on May 2 at the Appling County High School track, with a large crowd attending and the rain held off, everyone had a wonderful time walking and fellowshipping with each other. We were blessed with 35 teams signing up this year and we appreciate them very much as well as those who came out and supported their favorite team, entertained, was a corporate-sponsor or volunteered or donated to the cause in any way we, “THANK YOU,” because of your generosity the 2014 Relay For Life will end August 31, 2014 with over $55,000.00 raised. We could not have done it without you “Appling County.”
Thank you everyone for wanting to make a difference. We would like to say “THANK YOU,” to everyone who donated food or helped by volunteering in anyway to help make our 2014 Survivor Banquet so successful. We want to especially thank Friendship Congregational Christian Church and Pastor Barry Teutsch for the use of their social hall to hold the banquet. We had a wonderful time. We want to thank all the survivors who came to the banquet and to the Relay, to those who were not able to come - you were very much missed and hope to see you in March for the banquet and the May 1, 2015 Relay.
We are already beginning to make plans for the upcoming year. Beginning in October with Prostate and Breast Cancer Awareness. Do your part and start making plans to get your check up, early detection saves lives!
I want to also thank one of the hardest working committees in Appling County, they do an amazing job, they give 100% every year and I am truly blessed to be able to work with such generous and loving people like the Relay committee and team captain’s and co-captains, thank you again and God Bless you all. Please watch newspaper for upcoming events.
