THE RELAY FOR LIFE EVENT  was a rewarding success! Our church team contributed over $12,100 for the American Cancer Society. Here is more good news.  Our team has been authorized to offer a few Courtyard Stay certificates - which had been available only at the Relay - at reduced prices.   And not as auction items, but at fixed prices to the first donors of $225, $250, and then four more at $275 instead of the advertised $300 level (but you can always donate more).  This offer for the Courtyard Stays is good for donations through August 2018.    You can choose your weekend thru the next 18 months, anytime until the end of 2019. Questions? Talk to Richard Moll.
