Grand Counyt Relay fro Life is Saturady and Sunday

To the Editor:What a great community we have where the local restaurants and businesses give so freely to help out a good cause.Relay For Life is an American Cancer Society fundraiser that helps to fight against cancer through research, services and advocacy. Planning for this event is a year-round effort and throughout the year local restaurants like Fontenot’s, Brickhouse 40 and Java Lava have been hosting team captain’s meetings, planning meetings and Kick Off events – generously donating fantastic food and service to help us fight cancer.Relay For Life will be held at the Middle Park High School track Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 8&9, starting at 7 p.m. continuing through the night to its conclusion at 7 a.m. the next morning. There will be a barbecue generously donated by Mountain Parks Electric, Fontenot’s, Hernandos and Smokin’ Moes. Midnight pizza will be provided by The Pub and Subway is donating sandwiches for our cancer survivor’s tent. To top it off, the Granby Rotary will be providing a pancake breakfast for all the hungry walkers and visitors in the morning.I am so grateful that we have a community where people support each other and are willing to give of themselves to help others. We all have the power to make a difference in this world and our community is doing a pretty good job to help make that happen.Join us for Relay For Life by walking on a team or just come enjoy the barbecue, listen to Hendrix, Osborne & Key, as well as Claudagh, or have fun taking part in the other festivities and games that are planned.Next time you go to one of those fabulous restaurants, thank them for helping our community fight cancer.Leslie DinesTabernash
