Relay for Life, luminarias
Join people throughout Webster County by making a donation for a luminaria in honor or in memory of someone touched by cancer.
Webster County’s sixth annual Relay for Life event will be at 6 p.m. May 16 at North Mississippi Medical Center-Eupora’s walking track (see Page 1 article for details).
Luminarias (with the names on them) will line the track at the hospital that night. During the event, all participants will share in the special luminaria ceremony; candles will be lit and names will be called of those for whom donations for luminarias have been received.
Anyone interested in making a donation of $10 for a luminaria may request an order form that displays the bright pink luminaria poster or by calling Frances Hyde at 552-0705. People are encouraged to secure their luminarias early so that they may enjoy the activities the night of the event.
