Paint your support for Logan’s Relay For Life

By Chris Cooper -

New Vision Community Church is hosting two paint parties to raise money for the 2016 Logan County Relay for Life event.

The first painting class will be held Thursday, Sept. 24 at 6 p.m. at New Vision Community Church, 111 McDougal Way, Russellville.

Participants will be shown how to paint a fall pumpkin scene. No art experience is necessary, just come and enjoy painting with others who want to help fight cancer.

This will be a fun family filled night. The cost of the event is $25, with all proceeds going to the Relay For Life of Logan County.

The second class will be held Thursday, Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. also at New Vision Community Church.

To register for either event, call Tammy Tinsley at the American Cancer Society at 270-847-3414.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life event is a life-changing experience that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries take part in this global phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.

Logan County has been participating in the Relay for Life initiative for over 20 years. Local citizens, businesses and organizations have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from Logan County alone over the years, to help find a cure for cancer. Important research makes changes to the battle each and every moment. However, it takes a lot of money to see these changes, and supporting the efforts is a way you can become involved in helping end this terrible disease that affects each of us in one way or another.
