PR-B Area Relay for Life planning meeting set April 16

Posted: April 9, 2013 - 5:30pm

The second planning and team captain meeting for the 10th anniversary of the Pine River-Backus Area Relay For Life will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, at The Warehouse in Pine River.

Teams can consist of eight to 15 members and each member raises $100 through the sale of luminary bags in honor or memory of a loved one.

This is the 10th year since the relay has returned to the Pine River-Backus area, so plans are to make it a big event. It is also the 100-year anniversary of the American Cancer Society.

Contact Tina Grewe at 568-6084 with any questions. The Relay For Life will be Friday, June 21, at the Pine River-Backus High School track with the opening ceremony honoring area survivors at 7 p.m.
