Community invited to Relay kickoff

GLASGOW — The Barren County Relay for Life committee is calling on the whole community to join in its Trunk-or-Treat kick-off event this Sunday.

Barren County Relay hosts a fundraising kickoff every fall, but this year is the first time the committee has opened the event up beyond Relay for Life teams and is asking all community members to participate, according to Luminaria Chair Lisa Black. Black and other committee members have made an effort to attend other community events and spread the word about the Trunk-or-Treat this Sunday at 3 p.m.

“We’re trying to blitz the community with this event and hoping that the community will come out and support our event,” Black said.

The committee hopes having extra community involvement in the kickoff will lead to extra involvement with Relay for Life and this year will blow other years “out of the water,” Black said. As all Relay for Life events raise money for the American Cancer Society, committee co-chair Mica Wood said this Sunday is a great activity for families to be part of.

“The American Cancer Society is a great cause so coming out to support the American Cancer Society is always a positive thing,” Wood said.

Of course, the event will also be a lot of fun, according to Black, and it will give children an extra chance to show off their Halloween costumes. This year’s Relay theme is “Hope never takes a siesta,”  so there may be a few sombreros among the team costumes. The Trunk-or-Treat will be held in the Glasgow Middle School parking lot from 3 to 5 p.m., and Relay teams will have “trunk sites” set up with decorated cars and plenty of candy. Along with trunk-or-treating, attendees will have games, giveaways, face-painting, inflatables and food.

“Bring your kids, do trunk-or-treating, let them enjoy a fun afternoon,” Black said.
