On Sunday, February 16, the Essex and Dundalk Relay committees held a Survivor’s Dinner at Our Lady of Hope Parish Hall. Survivors, caregivers and family members were invited to celebrate “More Birthdays” and to celebrate the fact that more people are surviving cancers than ever before. It was a fun afternoon for all with a DJ, a hot meal, desserts and fundraising activities. Judy Dick, Chair of the Dundalk Relay was Mistress of Ceremonies. Earle Prior, Co-Chair of the Essex Relay was also present. Earle and his wife Kathy have also served as chairs of the Essex Survivors Dinner at Essex Relay for about 20 years. The Priors have energetically promoted the Survivors/Caregivers Dinner to include over 100 participants who enjoy a delicious meal before the Opening Ceremonies followed by the Survivors Lap between the Student Union Building and the gym at CCBC-Essex.

Over the past several months some teams have been quite active in hosting fundraisers. During the next 3-4 months more teams will be also be held. A big shout-out goes to Eastern Tech High School who will be hosting their second event on Saturday, March 29 from 5-11 PM. This is primarily a “teen event” – organized and operated by the students. Parkville High will repeat their Relay event on March 15.
