The American Cancer Society Relay For Life took place at Oakside Park in Biglerville on Saturday evening, Aug. 21. True to our Theme of “Game On – Join The Fight Against Cancer” I’m excited to say we added something different to our event this year with some well-received bingo with prizes.

In 2020, our Adams County Relay For Life had to be a “drive-through” event and we had the luminaries lighting the path into the park. This year, while we held a shortened event, we were able to have the luminaries surround the pond where the reflection seemed to have a special meaning especially now.
