The first day of Spring was filled with daffodils, thanks to Clinton County Relay For Life and the students at Keystone Central School District (KCSD), including students from the Sugar Valley Rural Charter School. This year, over $17,000 worth of daffodils were sold, largely by students during January and February. The classroom with the highest sales in the High School, the Middle School, and the Elementary School were rewarded with a pizza party, as were the students that participated in Renovo.
Did you know? Daffodils represent a symbol of hope for people affected by cancer, and proceeds from the Daffodil Days fundraiser support them.
According to Roxanne Embick, who coordinated the event with Shanan Renninger Miller, “One student sold over $600, and several students sold more than $100. A big thank you to everyone who helped with delivery, especially Lauri Moses Schaitkin, Rose DeFrancesco Reeder, Debbie Meder, Mary Ann Clark, Shanan Renninger Miller, Earl Embick, and Grand Central Beer Distributor.”
Clinton County Relay For Life raises money and awareness for the American Cancer Society, and the people affected by cancer.
The next Relay for Life event is a Cornhole Tournament at Bald Birds Brewery in Jersey Shore on April 29. The cost for the event is $40 for a team of two. Registration is at noon, and the bags fly at 1 p.m. There will be a basket raffle, rip-off tickets and food at the event.
The Relay for Life of Clinton County Walk will be held on June 24 from noon to 10 p.m. at Riverview Park. Many events, in addition to the walk, are planned for that day.
