Relay for Life needs canned goods

Marion County Relay for Life will be Saturday at Marion High’s Warrior Stadium. Organizers will use canned goods as weights for the luminaries this year. After the event, the canned goods will be distributed among the four local food banks.

Multiple drop-off buckets are available at Hillsboro and Marion businesses and the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce office.

Events will begin at 4 p.m. with a pulled-pork meal. The opening ceremony with a balloon launch will be at 5 p.m. A frozen T-shirt game will start at 7 p.m., the winner being the person who can don a frozen T-shirt first. Luminaries will be lighted at 9 p.m., with a closing ceremony at 10:45 p.m.
