Cancer - what does that word mean to you? Everyone knows someone who has been affected by it. The American Cancer Society with local volunteers sponsor the Relay For Life each year. It is a fund raising event that helps communities fight back. Karnes County’s first meeting will be held Tuesday, Aug. 19 at Karnes City Public Library at 5:45 p.m. Relay for Life is seeking volunteers to help fill committee positions. If you are interested or know someone who might be, please attend to see how you can help the community. For questions, please call Karen Walston 210-268-7353 the 2014-2015 Karnes Relay Chairman.
