Here’s your chance to contribute

Relay for Life is searching for a chair for their Smart Shop program. Read on to see how you can help!

Every year, a group of very dedicated people get together and join a committee to organize the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. This year is no different.

We are lucky to have retained the majority of our committee from last year, but are still in need of someone to chair the Smart Shop. Rosemary Clark has been chairing this position for a number of years, and is well deserving of a break.

We did have someone lined up, but she has since had to back out.

The Smart Shop is an integral part of the Relay for Life. The purpose of the Smart Shop is to provide on-site cancer educational activities and information, focusing on the Canadian Cancer Society’s five priorities of Prevention, Advocacy, Research, Information and Support. All brochures, display boxes, pamphlets, etc. are supplied by the Canadian Cancer Society.

The majority of the work for this position is on the day of Relay, which is Saturday, June 11.

The best cure for cancer is prevention, and this is an excellent opportunity to provide valuable information to residents of the valley.

If you think you can help, please contact me at your earliest convenience. I can be reached by phone at 250-342-9059 or email at
