NEWS AND TRIBUNE LETTERS — For April 9

It is not merely a beautification project. If designed thoughtfully with rain gardens and porous “hard” surfaces, the park provides an opportunity to infiltrate additional stormwater plus offer an attractive entrance to Jeffersonville.

Chair reminds of a life-saving event

 

We have seen many changes take place in politics and our economy. However one constant is that many people are battling cancer and many others are supporting their loved ones each and every day. 

These realities make dollars donated and hours volunteered to the American Cancer Society in Floyd County so important.

Local volunteers are a huge part of the nationwide effort to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. But additional volunteers are needed to help in this effort. Plans are underway for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Floyd County, set for June 7 and 8 at New Albany High School (Clark County’s event comes first, May 17-18 at Charlestown High School).

Money raised at Relay For Life helps the American Cancer Society’s mission of helping people stay well and get well, finding cures and fighting back against cancer. Relay For Life supports the Society’s vital research efforts, as well as programs for patients including transportation assistance and free lodging at Hope Lodge facilities. Relay For Life also makes it possible for the American Cancer Society to provide helpful information on cancer, treatments, support services and more 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at 1-800-227-2345 and cancer.org.

Now is the time for Southern Indiana individuals, families, groups, churches and businesses to join in the fight against cancer through Relay For Life. Celebrate those survivors. Remember those loved ones no longer here. Pledge to fight back against this disease. Form a team and volunteer for the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life today. Call 1-800-227-2345 or visit relayforlife.org/floydin for more information on local opportunities.
