CHENANGO COUNTY – The Chenango Relay For Life committee is hoping to paint the county purple once again and dozens of local businesses, restaurants, organizations, schools and individuals are expected to pitch in tomorrow for the annual event.
Said Relay For Life Committee co-chair Marie DeSarro, “It’s a great opportunity for us to promote our local Relay For Life and to get the community involved.”
Participation, she added, is simple: fly a purple flag, decorate the office in purple, plant purple flowers or simply wear purple to work May 1. DeSarro also urged people to “get creative” if they’d like, and take pictures.
“Please take pictures,” stressed DeSarro. “We would love to have pictures of our community participating in Paint the County Purple, which we can then post on our Relay For Life website.”
