Relay for Life 2012 Luminaria Bags
For those of us here in Lamar County that plan to attend and participate in the Relay for Life, the Luminaria Ceremony is a sight to see. It is a time to remember loved ones that have lost the fight against cancer. It is also a time for survivors to look back, reflect, and have hope about their future. The bags are usually decorated by family and friends and candles are placed inside to illuminate the bags for the ceremony.
If you are interested in purchasing a Luminaria Bag for the Relay for Life event June 29-30th, please stop by First Federal Community Bank or call Molly Woodall at (903) 737-5482 or (903) 669-4382. You can also contact Carolyn Lockett at (903) 737-9640. The Luminaria Bags are $5 each and every penny goes to Relay for Life.
The Relay for Life of Lamar County is on June 29th starting at 7 p.m. at North Lamar Stadium. So far there are 345 people participating, 38 teams, and almost $7,000 has been raised. If you are interested in taking part in this year’s Relay for Life, please click here.
