Supporters of the county’s 2008 Relay for Life learned Monday night that their continued hard work has not gone unnoticed.
In the kickoff meeting for the 2009 drive, volunteers learned that last year’s local campaign raised $264,000. The money helps fund American Cancer Society cancer research, and cancer awareness and wellness programs.
For their efforts, the locals won three regional awards.
One award was for 100 percent school participation throughout the county.
