Relay for Life of Webster County was Saturday at First Baptist Church of Eupora’s Family Life Center. The location of the annual event was changed from the hospital walking track because of the threat of rain. “Let the Good Times Roll Away Cancer” was the theme and all proceeds benefited the American Cancer Society. The 2015 top fundraising teams were (first-fifth) Eupora First Baptist Church, Eupora Schools, Fox Corner, Walthall Baptist Church and NMMC-Eupora.
