St. John American Cancer Society Relay for Life Sells Luminarias

The St. John American Cancer Society Relay for Life will be selling commemorative luminarias at Market Place and Mongoose Junction this holiday season. One of the cornerstones of the Relay for Life event is the luminaria ceremony, where candles shine from paper bags decorated with messages in support of those who battle cancer and in memory of those who have been lost. As relay participants walk throughout the night, the luminaria light their journey.
Purchase a luminaria in support of or in memory of someone in your life who has been touched by cancer. Each purchase will help fund the American Cancer Society’s fight against the disease. Luminarias will be on sale at Market Place from 4-6 p.m. on Dec. 11, 18, 20, 21 and 23, and at Mongoose Junction between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on December 10, 15, and 22. They can also be purchased from Karen Radtke by calling 779-4419 or by e-mailing karenradtke11@gmail.com.
