St. John’s Relay for Life Team

St. John’s Team at Relay for Life did an awesome job again this year!  So far we have raised over $3,900. and the total is still not in!  Our team is ranked #5 out of 19 teams.  Way to go St. John’s!!  Despite the weather people were walking all hours day and night.  We had two big storms go through on Saturday and early Sunday morning, we were told to pick up and move earlier than we had planned.  This was disappointing to say the least.  We want to thank everyone who donated to the American Cancer Society, whether it was a monetary donation, baked goods or crafts for our sale, and by showing up to walk or rock for a cure!  Thank you to our survivors and to everyone who showed their support for our team.  You can be very proud of our church!

Carol Wild & Sue Eversole, Co-Captains
