E-mail Print PDF

To help people participating in Relay For Life of Hopkins County, which officially spans from 7 a.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday on the Sulphur Springs Middle School Track, and the community keep up with the many activities slated during and just prior to the fundraiser.

Team members may begin setting up campsites after 5 p.m. Thursday or after 8 a.m. Friday on at Sulphur Springs Middle School Track. But RFL Committee members remind those setting up that they won’t be able to drive on the track but can pull up to the edge of the fence. Look for RFL Committee staff (Tony Aguilar and Dial Moffatt) members who will be using “Gators” to help transport the “big stuff” to camp sites.

T-shirts should also be picked up by 6 p.m. Thursday at First United Methodist Church.

Also, teams are reminded they must have a fire extinguish if they have a grill at their campsite.
