Relay For Life to host meet and greet July 31 in Redwood Falls

Troy Krause
Members of Relay For Life have been busy Painting the Town Purple helping to keep the program in the eye of the public in recent days. Roger Pabst and Sherry Brandt placed purple bows and signs in a number of Redwood County communities, including Milroy, recently.

This coming Friday (July 31) Redwood County Relay For Life volunteers are hosting a meet and greet at town square park in Redwood Falls, which is on Second Street across the street from Calf Fiend.

The event will be held from 4-7 p.m. The meet and greet will be cancelled in the event it is raining.

The park will be decorated, luminaries can be purchased and information will be available regarding how to be part of future Relay For Life efforts.
