relay-for-life-luminariesMarshall County Relay for Life will kick-off the 2016 event with a special Luminaria Ceremony on Thursday, November 5th at the Marshall County Courthouse beginning at 6:30 p.m.

When the sun goes down, luminaria light the way under the stars to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember our loved ones who have lost the battle, and honor those who have fought back against the disease and won.  This ceremony of light symbolizes the hope and perseverance with which we all continue to fight.

Survivors are the honorary guest at the event and the public is encouraged to come and participate.

Luminaria bags are available for a recommended $10 donation  from Erin Metsker at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department Marilyn King at the Plymouth Fire Department, Judy Newberg at, Joan Hundt at or Kathy Bottorff at WTCA.

You can purchase a bag and take it to decorate yourself, if you don’t want to decorate the classic white bags Marshall County Relay for Life will create a bag for you and bring them to the event on November 5th otherwise you are invited to bring your bag and join the ceremony.

Light the way to a cure with the purchase of a luminaria and support the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.  Donation forms are bags are now available from the various locations in Marshall County.
