Hop on your bikes -- Poker Run this Sunday

Within less than a month, the county’s version of Relay For Life will begin its 12 hours of remembrance for those stricken with cancer.
And lots of opportunities are on the schedule to help the community reach this year’s goal of $75,000.
With more than $20,000 collected thus far, a poker run, starting at Walls Diner, is set for Sunday afternoon. A “Music-A-Rama” is set for April 11 at the Sylvania Amphitheatre.
The “Survivors Dinner” is April 14 and the Relay For Life Pageant is April 25.
The theme of this year’s Relay is “PEACE + HOPE + LOVE = RELAY” as teams can select from 1960s songs to decorate their campsites at Cail Field May 1. The teams also must create Relay slogans which use their team songs. Then they must perform the song during the singing competition the night of Relay.
To sign up a team, contact either KathyrnYoules at 912-978-1349; Dale Reddick at 912-682-1168; or Willene Dickey at 912-564-2223.
The City of Sylvania “Jail-N-Bail,” sponsored by the local police department March 26 and 27, was a success, according to organizers, and the March 22 one-time-a-year Sunday lunch at Walls Diner raised $2,360 for Relay.

A Relay For Life reminder for the public to support cancer research will be seen in Saturday’s livestock festival parade as committee members will wave from a float.

On the following day, a Poker Run is scheduled from 2 to 6 p.m. The April 5 event will start at Walls Diner on Mims Road.

Registration begins at 1 p.m. with the first bike on the road at 2 p.m. All the bikes need to return by 6 p.m.

The first “hand” registration is $20, while it is $5 for each additional hand.

Riders will have the chance to receive prizes for the “best hand,” second-best hand,” and “worst hand.” Free refreshments also will be served.

A “Music-A-Rama” is planned for the Sylvania Amphitheatre, behind the courthouse, April 11 from 1 to 6 p.m. The public is invited to this Relay For Life event, sponsored by Jackson Baptist Church and its team leader Connie Howell. People can come sing a song or just sing along.

Among those scheduled to perform April 11 include Glen Walden, Bill Lane, Vicki Bragg, R.C. Cline and Patsy Finch. Karaoke music will be provided as there will be hundreds of songs from which to choose. “Pickers and grinners” also welcome.

Bring chairs, blankets and coolers for an afternoon of musical fun. No alcoholic beverages will be allowed. Donations will be accepted for the American Cancer Society.

April 11 also will be the date for a golf tournament at Briar Creek Country Club. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
To honor area residents and their caregivers, the annual “Survivors Dinner” has been set for April 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Cail Community Center on Millen Road.
The Relay For Life Pageant is planned for April 25 as Tammie Lewis will organize the event this year.

Team Captain meetings are the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the library. The next date is April 13.
“Bank Night” will be April 27 at 5 p.m. at the Sylvania branch of the Bank of Newington. That also will be the evening for team captains to pick up their Relay T-shirts for team members.
During the 12 hours of Relay on May 1 and 2, team contests will include dance, limbo and hula hoop.
Bill and Peggy Lanford request that luminaries to honor or memorialize people with cancer be turned in to them before 7 p.m. the night of Relay. Teams can turn in their forms now for the bags of lit candles that will line and illuminate the walkway at Relay.
