Event Meetings



We can't wait to meet the team

Come join us for the 2017 Relay for Life Kick Off Party on January 21, 10-1, at the Silvana Viking Hall.  This year we are combining relays from Stanwood and Arlington into one huge relay entitled the Stilly Valley Relay for Life. Learn what Relay for Life is all about, register your teams, enjoy lunch, find out what the American Cancer Society provides with money raised through relay, play bingo and get pumped up for this year's relay.  Dr. Seuss is our theme with the slogan being:   I don't like cancer here or there.  I don't  like cancer anywhere!
