Ennis Relay planning gets under way

The annual Relay for Life isn’t until April, but local organizers are already hard at work planning for the campaign to raise funds for the event.
The 2010 Relay for Life of Ennis Committee has formed with representatives from all walks of life in the community, and has begun planning for next year’s events as part of the American Cancer Society’s 2010 Relay for Life. The 2010 Relay teams’ theme will be “The Official Sponsor of Birthdays.”

“Team decorations will be geared toward that birthday-party type atmosphere,” said Angela Jones, Ennis Regional Medical Center
administration worker and co-chair of the Ennis committee.

Today is the first budget meeting for the event, Jones said, and local representatives will meet with faces from the American Cancer Society to set this year’s funding goal. Most likely, she said, the committee will try to stay with last year’s goal of $185,000. The 2009 effort fell short by just under $10,000.
