15th Annual Dickinson County Relay for Life June 22 

The 15th Annual Dickinson County Relay for Life will be held in Queens Court at Arnolds Park Amusement Park Friday evening.

Co-Chair Abby Kohlhaas says the theme this year is 'Carnival For a Cure'.  "Starting at 5 o'clock, the Team and Survivor registration begins, and also the silent auction, and the Community Meal starts at 5:30.  That is going to be free for all Survivors, and a free will donation for the general public.  At 7 o'clock, our Opening Ceremonies start.  Right after that we will have our Survivor, and then our Caregiver Lap.  We will have games, scavenger hunt, our frozen t-shirt contest.  The kids love that stuff, and it's so much fun.  We will have a special Survivor Speaker again this year."

She adds that the Lighting of the Luminarias will be held at dusk.  "It's just one of the most meaningful parts of the night, really.  Reading everybody's names that have fought and lost the battle to cancer, and who have fought and won the battle. We just want to be there to support all of those people."

The public is encouraged to attend Relay for Life.
