Bake sale, dance this weekend for Relay for Life
Rowan County’s Relay For Life teams plan to keep folks busy and happy at fundraisers crucial to meeting the county goal of $400,000. To date, $45,863 has been raised, but there’s more to do before the Relay year ends and the Relay event on May 3-4.
Team Rejoice is collecting used cellular phones, co-sponsored by Power House Recycler. Cell phones can be in any condition — working, broken, new, used or outdated. Each phone collected equals a donation to the American Cancer Society through Relay For Life of Rowan County. Contact Arlene at 980-216-1067. Collections will continue through the Relay For Life in May.
Join the BloodHound Gang at their bake sale on Friday at 2 p.m. at the H&B Market in Cleveland (across from Freightliner).
