Relay For Life Meeting Coming Up In Two Weeks (Audio)
The 2013 Relay for Life will be held at the Pine City High School track/football field from 2pm-2am, June 1-2. The chairperson this year is Eric Wicktor, who is a high school teacher in Pine City. Wicktor called in on Tuesday to talk about the upcoming kickoff meeting at the Pizza Pub on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 6:00pm. The purpose of the meeting is to talk about details and goals for the event and also to find out who in the community is interested in helping, donating, or organizing a team.
“It does not take a lot to be on a team or the captain of a team,” Wicktor said. “Teams can consist of anyone. A lot of local businesses and churches will be putting together a team but it doesn’t have to stop there. Families and individuals can start a team too.”
Wicktor said that this year there may be a couple meetings for the captains to get together or for the captains to organize their own people. Individuals in each group are responsible for getting donations and being active in the event. This is all very simple and done online if you like. If you are interested in getting involved or starting a team please contact Eric Wicktor at 629-4132 or .
