Clinton County Relay For Life will hold its inaugural “Light the Night” event on Sunday, May 8.
The event will be an opportunity for residents throughout the county to decorate and display luminarias on their front porches and to proudly proclaim in their own homes that “Hope Lives Here.”
Luminaria bags are $10 each and can be purchased at a variety of local banks, the Trenton and Breese Dairy King locations, the YMCA/HealthPlex in Breese and at the Breese, Germantown, Aviston, Albers and New Baden city halls.
Decorated bags used for the Clinton County Light the Night can also be used at the Relay For Life luminaria ceremony on Aug. 5 at Central High School by simply checking in your bag at the luminaria table.
For more information, call Laura Anderson at 618-304-5278, Elizabeth Thole at 618-604-1212, Dana Timmermann at 618-604-2263 or Alicia Hemker at 618-570-9881.
Money raised through the Clinton County Light the Night will bring the relay committee one step closer to a world with less cancer and more birthdays — a world where not another life is lost to this disease.
