          Thank you to all interested people that came last month.  It is time again to start planning for the 2017 Ellwood City Relay For Life event.  Our members have been busy working on new ideas for more community involvement, come out and give us your ideas!  We meet at National Grind, 408 Lawrence Avenue, downtown at 6 pm, don’t shy away because of the meeting length or because you don’t  want to be committed to long term involvement in Relay.  Give us what time you have and be included in how this event comes together every year.  It can only become bigger and better with your help; why not join us at our meeting.  Please contact Ernie Copper at, or phone 888-227-6446 ext 2227.  Visit us on Facebook Relay For Life of Ellwood City, PA for more information.
