    The food booth will be available again, coordinated by the Knights of Columbus of Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church and Friends.  Hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, soda, coffee, hot chocolate, and tea will be available noon Friday-10:00am Saturday.

     Luminary Bags are on sale.  A donation is requested.  They can be purchased to honor a cancer survivor, or in the memory of someone we have lost to cancer.

     Also available are the large yard signs which are displayed on the fence around the track.  These too can be in memory or honor of a loved one.  Some businesses have also purchased these signs as a sponsor.  The cost is $100 per sign.

     This year we will again have "Light Up The Night."  Individuals or businesses may purchase a 8 1/2" x 11" corrugated plastic sign which is displayed on a tiki torch with a bow.  These signs may also be in memory or honor of someone special.  This was really successful last year and really added to the beauty of the luminary scene around the track.

     As always, we encourage all cancer survivors to join us Friday and Saturday for the special events we host to honor them.

     We are also still accepting team for this year's Relay For Life.  Contact the office at 1-888-227-5445 or call Pam Irwin at (814) 643-7262 for more information.
