This week we decorated Citizens Bank with purple ribbons in the windows and hung them outside to show our support for local cancer survivors. The idea started a few years ago by our community because they wanted to show their support of the local Relay for Life event and cancer survivors. They chose purple because it is the universal “color” designated for all types of cancer. There are several businesses that have decorated their windows in purple to also show their support.
On Monday, August 3rd, there was Music in the Park in Library Square Park where they also hosted a Survivor Celebration. Show your support by attending Relay for Life of McLeod County’s event on Friday, August 7, at the Masonic West River Park in Hutchinson. The auction and activities will begin at 3:00 p.m., live music at 5:00 p.m., and the program at 6:30 p.m. This free community event includes activities, games, and touching tributes to cancer warriors from around our county and beyond. Make sure you walk the luminaria lined path.
