RFL Preps Underway

RFL luminary 1 The Hays Middle School track is undergoing transformation this morning for tonight’s 18th annual Ellis County Relay for Life.

The fundraiser is for the American Cancer Society, most of which goes to research.

Members of the Gemini Juniors 4-H Club and other volunteers are filling  white luminary sacks with sand and candles; they’ll be lit at dusk.

More than 2,500 luminaries decorated in honor and memory of those who’ve battled cancer, will line the track, end zones and bleachers.

The Relay starts at 6p.m. tonight and continues until midnight. The public is invited to attend.
