TO THE EDITOR: This year was my first year forming a team for Relay for Life.
I created a team called LOL- Lots of Love. I couldn’t have done it without the people who donated or helped out in little ways.
I was fortunate to have two local businesses allow me to fundraise at their business. The Koffee Kat allowed my team to sell raffle tickets, luminaries and bracelets. We greatly appreciate them allowing us to be there. The Chazy Stewart’s Shop allowed team LOL to have a car wash there. The space was perfect, and we thank you for letting us use your parking space.
Thank you to Olivia Blaise, Rachel Pombrio, Kinnan Latremore and Maura Trombley, who all celebrated their sweet 16 birthdays together and, instead of gifts, asked for donations to the American Cancer Society. They raised $900 and donated it to Team LOL. It was very thoughtful of them. It means so much to me because I have known these girls for a long time and they didn’t need to do that but they chose to.
Team LOL raised $2,753, and I couldn’t have done any of this without the help from the people on my team. I would like to give a big thanks to my team members: my mom, Lisa, Karen and Bailey Pepper and Taylor Laurin. They took time out of there busy lives to come to fundraisers and also get donations from people. I greatly appreciate all of their hard work.
Also, thank you to everyone that supported our team, whether it was a donation, purchasing a raffle ticket, bracelet or luminara or doing all of it.
It’s unbelievable how supportive everyone is in our community.
