A Beautiful Reminder

By Staff | May 11, 2011

A special Luminaria Ceremony to be held during the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Tyler County will remember those lost to cancer and honor those who have survived. Luminaria will be lit at Sistersville City Park on June 3 at approximately 9:30 p.m. to represent these individuals.

Anyone desiring to make a luminaria donation may do so by contacting Deb Doig at 304-652-1125 or by visiting www.relayforlife.org/tylerwv. Each luminaria candle is $5.

Each luminaria represents the life of someone who has battled cancer. It is a beautiful sight when all the bags with candles are illuminated around the track. The Luminaria Ceremony is a moving way to remember loved ones lost to cancer and to pay tribute to cancer survivors.
