Relay for Life 2018 - The Wizard of Oz  "There’s No Place Like Hope"

The goal of The American Cancer Society (ACS) is to provide more funding to their programs, services, and research. Therefore, it has been decided that Garrett County will have one combined Relay for Life event to work together to maximize the fundraising for this great and important cause. Pulling together the resources and support for both events will ensure our success. A meeting will be held on Thursday, November 9  at 6 p.m. at the Garrett County Fairgrounds Ag Hall for everyone to come together to discuss these changes. If you are not able to attend the meeting but would like to provide input, please feel free to reach out to Courtney Case.
