A night to celebrate

-A A +A
By Carolyn Risner

They came by the scores. Some with tear-streaked faces; others with smiles that glistened. For a few short hours Friday night and Saturday morning, wars were forgotten, the price of gasoline only whispered about and plans for summer vacation were shelved as the community came together to celebrate a night of living as the 14th Annual Relay for Life got under way at Chiefland High School.

Opening ceremonies kicked off the evening when the family of Brandie Chewning was honored as the event was dedicated in her memory. The Relay was also held in honor of Donna Hayes, whose battle with cancer continues.

Music, dance and lots of food and games kept revelers busy and by morning, more than $23,000 was raised.

Heather Hayes of the American Cancer Society said it wasn't what they had hoped for, but were very happy nonetheless considering the sluggish economy that is affecting everyone.
