Letter: Carroll County cancer survivors honored

The Relay for Life of Carroll County cancer survivor celebration and dinner was held April 8 at the Mount Carroll Church of God. Nearly 120 cancer survivors, their spouses, caretakers, and guests were served a delicous meal. Following the meal, two quilts were given to two of the survivors as door prizes. All survivors received a potholder made from old Relay for Life shirts. The Mount Carroll Church of God Puppets of Praise then entertained everyone.

Many businesses, organizations, and individuals contributed to this very successful dinner. The survivor committee would like to say a “big thank you” to the Mount Carroll Church of God for the use of its facility; to all of those contributing food, monetary contributions, and helping in any way to honor these survivors. A job well done!

To all cancer survivors – We want to remind you that we have another event planned for Saturday, June 24, at Old Mill Park in Savanna, when the Relay for Life Event – Survivor Victory Lap will be held. The Relay will run from 5 to 11 p.m. There will be a “survivor’s tent,” where you may sit and participate in activities especially for you.
