Poland Relay set for Saturday

June 21, 2018
The Town Crier

The 2018 Poland Relay for Life will be held on June 23 at the Poland Seminary High School stadium. This year's event is a "Luau for Life" and will start at 11:00 a.m. and end at 11 p.m. The new 12-hour format includes a very busy and fun schedule for the entire family.

The annual Kids' Party will take place at 1 p.m. with cake, games and prizes for children ages 10 and under. The first 20 children in the gate will receive a free "Luau for Life" T-shirt, designed by Austintown fifth grade student Lillie Marshall. Marshall is the daughter of Jason and Janette Marshall and has been an active member of the Poland Relay for Life since 2014. She has been a volunteer server at the Survivor dinner for the past three years. Marshall is very proud to have her design featured on this year's Kids' Party T-shirts.

The Relay for Life Survivor activities will begin at 5 p.m. with Survivor recognition, the crowning of our Survivor royalty and Survivor and caregiver laps around the track. Following the laps, the Survivor Dinner will begin. Every Survivor will receive a free Survivor T-shirt and a goodie bag and each Survivor is encouraged to bring a caregiver escort to the dinner. The Luau for Life theme will be featured in the menu with pulled pork, tropical fruit salad, roasted potatoes, tossed salad, cake and pineapple centerpieces.

The Poland Relay for Life teams will be featuring food and raffle baskets at their tents and vendors will be on site. There will be games and activities for all ages throughout the day. Luminaria lighting will end the event with an inspirational and moving ceremony. This event is free and a great way to have quality time with the family.

Due to the event, the Poland Seminary High School Athletic Department will be closing Poland Stadium all day on Friday, June 22 and Saturday June 23. The Poland Stadium will be in use for the Relay for Life Event.
