The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.

Letter to Editor

Dear Editor,

I wanted to express my appreciation for everyone who participated in anyway with the 2009 Relay For Life of Henderson County. And I want to remind everyone that though short of our goal we can still turn in funds until August 31st! Just send it to the First State Bank of Biggsville and they will be glad to get it to Rock Island to be counted for us.

Every year one out of three people will hear the words "you have cancer" and I want to put a stop to those words. Even though we were rained out our spirit was not and we will continue to do what we do to make tomorrow a better day for all of us in Henderson County. Just remember if you can give only a little or you can give a lot that everyone that needs the services of the American Cancer Society will thank you.

As a committee we cannot reach out to you due to the privacy act, so if you need us please contact someone on the committee or call the American Cancer Society. Each year the committee works endless hours to put the Relay together for you so if you see someone that was on the committee please thank them for their many volunteer hours.

Remember we have until August 31st to send in our donations! Thanks for all you do through the year to help us to reach our goal. May God Bless and keep each of you safe until we reach a cure!

Charlotte Shafer
