Congratulations to Bud and Sally Wampach on celebrating six decades together!
Relay For Life was started in 1985, when a single man ran around a track in Tacoma, Wash., for 24 hours. Dr. Gordy Klatt raised $27,000 to help the American Cancer Society in that first year. In 1986, 340 others joined him.
Since that event, Relay For Life has raised more than $4 billion worldwide.
New signage was installed at the Wheeler Road ballfield, at The Teacherage and Community House and the Boca Grande Community Center earlier last week through Lee County. Our new signs will match others now at all county-owned recreational facilties.
A Boca Grande man was recently the victim of fraud after someone charged more than $16,000 to an account in his name and tried to open others.
