Relay for Life team to paint town purple

Published 3:53 pm Monday, April 9, 2007

You can help create excitement about the 2007 Miss-Lou Relay for Life. Miss-Lou Team Extreme and the Vidalia Women’s Club would like to invite you to paint Miss-Lou purple! Get in the loop and join to fight to raise awareness about cancer and how predominate it is in our area.

Miss-Lou Team Extreme is selling wreaths for $16 and purple bows for $8 to be displayed outside your place of business, your home or mailbox where everyone can see.

Please show your support to those businesses “painted in Purple” as we know they are joining us in the fight against cancer.

Cancer does not discriminate. It affects all races, men, women, young and old.

Early detection increases the survival rate. We encourage you to have annual check ups. Be aware of your body and report anything suspicious to your doctor.

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s campaign for cancer awareness. Cancer never sleeps so for one night neither will we.

There is no finish line until we find a cure. Funds raised are for research, education, advocacy and patient service.

For more information or to order your wreath or bow you may contact Julia Drews at 318-336-5942 or Tammy Rouse at 601-431-9255. Mail a check made payable to American Cancer Society or Miss-Lou Team Extreme to 287 Terry Circle, Vidalia, with your name, address and phone number. Wreaths and bows are being delivered now. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone in the Miss-Lou area “got in the loop” and have a wreath or a bow outside their home or place of business the month of April and paint Miss-Lou purple!!!

All proceeds will benefit the Miss-Lou Relay for Life. Please join us at the Relay for Life on May 4 at the Vidalia Riverfront. We hope to see you there!
