CHENANGO COUNTY – The Chenango Relay for Life Committee is stepping up preparations for the 2009 Relay, to be held July 17 and 18 at the Chenango County Fairgrounds. To get everyone in the relay spirit, the committee is asking community members to ‘go purple’ this Friday.
The Relay Committee plans a ‘Paint the Town Purple’ day on Friday. “It’s simply our request that people around Norwich and the surrounding towns in Chenango County show their support for the Relay for Life,” said event co-chair Marie DeSarro. That show of support can easily be achieved by donning purple, the official color of the relay.
