Emergency Director on Preparedness Planning Relay for Life Raises Awareness in Murray http://wkms.org/post/relay-life-raises-awareness-murray <p>The American Cancer Society's Community Representative Pam Whittemore likens the Relay for Life event at Murray's Stewart Stadium this Friday night to the experience of a cancer patient: everyone's there at the diagnosis or beginning, then during treatment attention dwindles or is unwanted, and upon cure everyone's back cheering. So Friday's event opens at 7 p.m.; the Luminaria Ceremony is at 9:30; and bands play from 11 p.m. to 3 p.m. when everybody's tired and there's some attrition. Nonetheless everyone's back for the 7 a.m. awards ceremony Saturday.</p><p> Fri, 03 May 2013 21:01:13 +0000 Kate Lochte 31393 at http://wkms.org Relay for Life Raises Awareness in Murray How iwis and Kemmerich Came to Murray, Partnerships with MSU http://wkms.org/post/how-iwis-and-kemmerich-came-murray-partnerships-msu <p>Mark Manning, President.
