The Lincolnton Relay for Life held its Survivors Dinner at First Baptist Church Thursday night (April 24th).

Many of those in attendance had one thing in common: they had survived cancer.  The ailment that was once considered a certain death sentence is no longer so.  Advances have been made in treatment.  Research has yet to find a cure for many forms of cancer, but survival rates are going up every year.  That's one reason the American Cancer Society has adopted the slogan, "Let's finish the fight."  Relay for Life, the main Cancer Society fundraiser, is hoping to do just that. 

The Lincolnton Relay has set a goal of $200,000 for this year.  The East Lincoln Relay, which holds its Survivors Dinner next Friday night (May 2nd) at 6 PM at Salem United Methodist Church, 378 North Pilot Knob Road.  Anyone who hasn't already done so is asked to register by calling Diane Keeney at 704-483-6348 or Judy Gibson at 704-483-5563.

Jeff Ross of the Shelby Relay for Life was the speaker at Thursday night's dinner in Lincolnton. 

Relay activities will continue with a "Paint the Town Purple" work party this Saturday in preparation for next week's Lincolnton Relay.  This year's Relay will be held downtown Friday night (May 2nd).  Streets will be blocked off similarly to the Apple Festival beginning about 3:30 on Friday.  Various activities are scheduled during the night and the Relay will end at 7 Saturday morning. 

The East Lincoln Relay for Life will be held one week later, Friday night May 9th beginning at 6 PM at David Clark Stadium at East Lincoln High School.
