The Luminary Ceremony is the soul of Relay for Life. At dust we quietly remember those whose lives have been touched by cancer. In the soft glow of the candlelight we reflect on the courage and strength of all who have been affected by cancer. During the luminary ceremony candles are lit in luminary bags which are dedicated in honor of a cancer survivor and in memory of a loved one lost to cancer. If you would like to purchase a luminary bag in honor or in memory of someone please call Karen Campbell at 304-647-8314 or Dreama West at 304-667-9627. Bags will be available the night of the event. The bags are $5 each.
