City ‘painted’ purple in support of cancer event

A group of local Relay for Life volunteers took to the street and “painted the town purple” April 12 in anticipation for Friday’s fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

“We paint the town purple to get the word out that the relay is just around the corner,” local chairwoman Charlene Hampton said.

Many local businesses are getting into the purple spirit and are participating in a competition to see who can create the best decorated business. Among those joining the contest are Wellness 2000, Boulder Dam Credit Union, Ruben’s Wood Craft and Toys, Albertsons and Farmers Insurance Geoff Baughman Agency.

The companies will be judged Friday before the relay, with the winner receiving special recognition at the event and a plaque.

Organizers of the event invite area residents to visit the participating businesses as well as attend the Relay for Life.

Admission to the relay, which begins at 6 p.m. Friday is $10, with all proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society and its quest to find a cure for cancer.
