The Central Frontenac Relay For Life kicked offin fine style last weekend with a breakfast-coffee house at Oso Hall in Sharbot Lake and Kylie Babcock, Zoe Comeau, Mia Comeau, Riley Merrigan and Bradie Merrigan were only too happy to help. Spokesperson Bob Brooks said this year (the Relay's 8th) they're trying to focus more on community, for example taking donations for the food bank at the coffee house which featured several local musicians including Shawn McCullough and Jim MacPherson. This year's Relay is set for June 20 at the Parham Fairgrounds. Brooks said they can always use more teams and-or sponsors so if you'd like to help or just become involved in some way, go to relayforlife.ca and follow the self-guided links to the Central Frontenac event.
