Quitman, Miss. Clarke County Relay for Life is saddling up for a country theme. This all day treat is expected to be a right fine good time with good food, hay rides, and plenty of country themed games for kids and adults. Although it's country themed, no horses will be allowed as teammates. So why a country theme this year?
Gay Lynn Joyner, co-chair for Clarke County Relay for Life, says, "Well we just thought it’d be a fun thing to do. Western is in right now and we thought it'd be a great thing to do. And we all love horses and just thought it'd be a great theme. Everything we do that day is going to be western themed."
It is going to be a day of fun on April 26 with activities throughout the day at Archusa Water Park but the main events won't kick off till after the sun goes down.
Co-chair Verlynn Robinson says, "Our survivor registration will start at 8:30 a.m., and the actual relay will start at 10 o'clock. We want all of our survivors to come out and participate. Register, get a t-shirt and some gift prizes that we have for everybody. We just want to celebrate life with our survivors."
On Saturday the 12th they will be having 'Cruisin' for a Cure' to help raise money for relay. Registration for the ride will begin at 10am in the morning in Enterprise and kickstands are up at 1pm. It is going to be a 100 mile ride and comes with a free lunch. There will also be a rummage sale Saturday morning at town hall in Stonewall starting at 7:30 a.m.
