Relay for Life Kick-Off Party

The Kick-Off Party for the Jay Relay For Life was held January 17, 2012 at the Jay Community Center with more than one hundred in attendance.   Each table was decorated by teams with   2012 Relay for life   theme “ Ordinary Heroes”. The evening began with a warm welcome by the Event Chair-Jody Williams.

The American Cancer Staff Partner, Sally Cary presented “The Santa Rosa County Nationwide  Top 10 per Capita Award” to Jay Relay for Life group.   This award means that Jay raised more money Per person than other cities. 

Bro. Lennie Howard was also present and delivered the blessing of the food. We all enjoyed the special moments of a slide show of past relay events prepared by EREC.
