We want no one left out of this special walk." Also, there is no charge for walking in this event. Afterwards, the various teams are asked to join in and to start their own chain walks, lasting from about 7:15 p,m. to 5 a.m. Fresh team members take over for those tiring out, alternat- ing off-and-on, throughout the evening and morning hours. "We do this Relay for Life, rain or shine," she adds, reminding partici- pants to come dressed for all types of weather. "It's a fun experience re- gardless of the weather," she remarks. The financial side Teams consist of from eight-to-15 members, although individuals don't have to commit to a group to walk and participate. The Relay for Life's lead- ers ask the teams to get pledges of monetary support from businesses and individuals in order to raise as much money as possible. Likewise, participants can request contributions from relatives, neigh- bors and friends for walking the laps. Last year several people walked all night long without taking long breaks, asking friends for money as they made their ways around the track. Luminaria Ceremony Another emotion-packed time at the Relay for Life is the Luminaria Ceremony which will begin at about 9:15 p.m., or after it becomes dark outside. At the check-in area, one can pur- chase the luminaries-- candles -- for either family or friends who have either died or are currently fighting cancer. "Our Luminaria Ceremony honors the memory of those who have lost their lives to cancer or to those who have survived," Mrs. Edwards points out. In good weather, the lumi- 000 Continued from Page 1 excel in the folk music traditions which the Folk Festival tries to preserve, she adds, quickly mentioning with pleasure that her visiting daughter, Heidi, will join her on the stage in a singing routine. Moreover, Tracy Schwarz will be the featured fiddler on Thursday evening; Dave Bing and five Englishmen, on Friday evening; and Gerry Milnes, on Saturday evening. This year's Folk Festival will take place in Glenville on the weekend of June 17-20. Several stores around town have the 2004 Festival brochure. Gilmer County Historical Society presents Dr. Espy Miller At 6:30 p.m. on this Thurs., May 20, the Gilmer County Historical Society's program will be given by a Glenviile State College professor emeritus, Dr. Espy Miller, who was a long-time and popular English teacher. His topic: ,"Moments to Remember: 50 Years of Life in Gle, nvill." The meeting will be at the Holt House Museum's Annex (the old Senior Center) on East Main Street in Glenville next door to the Crafter's Patch. Historical Society President Hunter Armentrout has instituted a series of monthly programs. Other topics scheduled for the near future are: "The Historical Landmarks of Gilmer County" by Jim Bailey and "Ireland: The Travels of a Young Gilmer Countian" by Jason Collins. In addition, the Society will, once again, participate in the Folk Festival and hold a joint meeting and barbecue with the neighboring Calhoun County Historical Society later in the summer.

Generally, the families of cancer victims will. sponsor the $5.00 apiece candles, and, then, stand by them with their relatives or friends, while the brief, yet often tearful prayer service takes place. This year, Neal Benson, a GSC technology dept. employee, is in charge of the Luminaria Ceremony. Typical interim activities During the course of the evening and morning, the walkers are enter- tained by a number of local live bands, singers and a DJ. Music is in the air, helping to make the time pass faster. "We're very appreciative of all of the local musicians who will be per- forming during that event," Mrs. Edwards says. Jam sessions usually take place in the camping and tent areas, too, she adds. In addition, representatives from the regional office of the American Cancer Society will sponsor lively and fun-filled games for the children. "The kids really enjoyed these games last year," she recalls. Typically though, people, who are walking, socialize among themselves, having the time to catch up on each other's progress and the news in gen- eral. Closing Ceremony At 5 a.m. Saturday morning, the event is called to a halt, and the walk- ers and other participants are ushered over to the main staging area. There, the Closing Ceremony will take place. "We will then give out the awards for the best camp site, the best picnics, and the team raising the most money," she outlines. By then, the organizers are expected to have a total of how much money was raised at Gilmer County's Relay for Life. Additionally, the participants are treated to breakfast compliments of McDonald's of Glenville. With so many area people commit- ted to conquering the dreaded disease of cancer, the Fourth Annual Gilmer County Relay for Life is bound to be a success, the organizers.believe.
