WE HAVE A THEME FOR 2013: "LET'S FINISH THE FIGHT FOR A FUTURE THAT'S BRIGHT!"
We talked about "Neon" being popular and it led to a discussion about the American Cancer Society's 100th Birthday in May of this year. The call to action is "Finish The Fight!" So we are combining the two ideas. See what you miss when you don't come to the monthly meetings? You can decorate your campsite with bright, neon colors, dress in neon costumes and use your creativity to bring the theme into all parts of our event this year. Join us for the next meeting to add your thoughts to how we can include the theme in event activities, ceremonies and decorations.

The journey to end cancer starts with a single step. The American Cancer Society invites you to take that step with us by joining the global Relay For Life movement. When you walk to end cancer at a Relay event, it's your opportunity to not only honor cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost, but also to raise awareness about what we can do to stay well from cancer and raise money to help fuel the world's largest walk to end cancer.
