Team members and captains, any cancer survivor and all community members are invited to attend the Hopkins County Relay For Life 2007 Wrap Up, which begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 19, on the downtown square.

Anyone interested in becoming a committee member and helping ramrod next year's RFL event is also welcome.

"This will be the time we tell who wins what," HCRFL 2007 Committee member Cindy Smith said. "We'll give our totals, trophies, recognize sponsors and survivors. Of course, as with any Relay event, survivors are always welcome. It starts at 10 a.m., so bring your lawn chairs and join us."

Among the team awards to be dispensed are first through third place adult and youth trophies for campsite, most money raised and luminary sales. The relay committee will also be presenting awards for the most raffle sales, most laps walked, most spirit and baton.

One category of particular interest will be youth team fund raising, as the final count was a close call among teams, according to Smith.
