T’dale Relay For Life changing things up
THORNDALE—Relay For Life of Thorndale is kicking off its next season with some major changes.
Biggest change is that there will be one large team rather than several smaller teams. Members of the Relay committee w ill also act as team cocaptains. This allows the group to refocus on the goal for Relay and reduce t he compet it ion involved.
While a single team concept is the direction for this year, any group(s) that would like to participate as an individual team is welcome to do so. While there will still be a registration fee for the team, there will also be a $5 commitment fee asked of each team participant to use as ‘seed’ money for fund-raiser activities. The commitment fees will also go toward the overall goal for the Relay.
To minimize the number of fund-raisers held by Relay teams, there will be two major opportunities for them to raise money—a large fund-raiser in the fall and one again in the spring. The hope is that this will encourage Relay participation and allow teams more time to participate in the various other activities in the lives of members and community.
Meet i ng T uesday— First planning meeting for the 2011- 2012 Relay will be held at 6:30 p. m. Tuesday, Sept. 6 in the Thorndale Firemen’s Hall kitchen area. Discussion will include possibly changing the date/time for the 2011-2012 Relay, selecting a name for the team and the fall fund-raiser.
Anyone interested in participating in the Relay is encouraged to attend the meeting. If you have any questions, or would like to participate but will not be able to attend the meeting, contact Relay For Life of Thorndale chair Deana Caffey at 512-898- 5189 or 512-898-0421.
