Meeting is Friday
Citizens are asked to mark their calendars – Friday, March 16, pick out a favorite purple shirt, tie, dress or shoes to wear and help the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the Minden Relay For Life "Paint the Town Purple."
Individuals, families, representatives from local businesses and churches are all encouraged to wear purple and "Paint the Town Purple" at an event to be held from 4:30 until 6 p.m. Friday at El Jimador Mexican Grill, located 121 Homer Road.
Those attending will learn more about Minden's Relay for Life and how to become involved in the fight against cancer.
Relay for Life brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools and church groups, all aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost, and fighting back against the disease.
Relay For Life of Minden, an overnight event, will be held April 13 beginning at 6 p.m. in the Minden Walmart parking lot on Homer Road. Relay events are held throughout the evening as individuals and teams gather with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track at all times.
