The American Cancer Society is offering an opportunity for citizens, businesses and local communities to show their awareness and support in the fight against cancer from 6 p.m. to midnight, Friday, May 4.

To show their support of the fight against cancer, communities are encouraged to Paint the Town Purple beginning April 16 through May 4. Communities can “Paint the Town Purple” by creating purple displays in storefronts, painting the porch lights purple or swapping out for a purple one, or selecting a day for everyone to wear purple.

Relay For Life volunteers will meet Monday April 16th at the Booneville Chamber of Commerce building at 210 East Main reet, Booneville at 5 p.m., to coordinate the purple decorating.

For more information about how to participate in painting your town purple or volunteering for the Relay For Life of South Logan County, call 1-800-227-2345 or visit
