    At the January 9th planning meeting for the upcoming Relay for Life in June (21-22), Com-mittee chairmen checked in with Chairwoman Pat Stone to update their plans for the Annual Kick-off Event being held at the Fitzone on Bluewood Plaza. The event starts at 4 PM with Chamber After Hours and goes long enough for the com-munity to sign up for teams at the June event.

    Lauren Olander, American Can-cer Society coordinator in Central Oregon, made sure that the group understood how the Relay for Life Event is a grassroots movement to fi ght cancer and it is the only one of its kind that works this way. (Lauren is a survivor who was just told that she has a recurrence of her cancer and she stressed how participating can really make a difference.)

    It means, basically, that the more people who are involved with the June weekend and the other fun-draising events like Bark for Life in May (3rd) that are scheduled throughout the calendar year, the better. A person can support Can Cancer to help those who are do-ing cancer treatments get to the appointments or have help with

    The Fitzone Kick-off will feature a YouTube video- about the 50th anniversary of smokers warnings (In 1964 40% of all adults were smokers and today about 20 % of Americans smoke) and it talks about how cancer is actually decreasing from the peak year in 1991, reduced by 20%. After the video there will be a short welcome and a

    We would like to recognize all the La Pine High School students that are making attendance a high priority. Students with high attendance have a great chance of achieving the goals they set out for themselves.

    In November 2006, La Pine became the newest city in the state of Oregon. Since that time, La Pine has seen lots of changes, and Mayor Ken Mulenex says La Pine will be growing up in 2014. At the January 8th City Council meeting, the agreement with Midstate Electric to provide street lights within the city was fi nalized. These new lights will be the fi rst city street lighting that the City has initiated and paid for. The agreement with Midstate represents signifi cant progress toward providing a safe com-munity and economic development opportunities for the residents of La Pine and the surrounding area.

    The partnership with Midstate Electric in this effort is exceptional. Midstate Electric is a not-for- profi t electric cooperative owned by its member/consumers. Headquartered in La Pine, Midstate serves over 18,000 consumers in four Central Or-egon counties, and it is clear that they take their responsibility to the community seriously. In an ef-

    fort to work collaboratively with the city, Midstate agreed to contribute $680 toward the expense of ev-ery light that is installed as part of this agreement.

    The City Council has approved installation of 20 LED streetlights as their initial effort. These 20 streetlights will be

    La Pine-Sunriver Relay for Life Team Plans Seasonal Kick-off on January 24th at Fit Zonediscussion about sponsorship and what it can mean for the event. There will be goodies to eat, a cake walk and the details about the Bark for Life dog event in May.

    Stone is concerned that after two massive mailings, there has been no response to speak of.

    Usually there are more spon-sors and teams formed by now, Pat told the committee. With the holidays over and life returning to normal, we are hoping that in-terested people will come to the Fitzone and sign up to participate in the amazing overnight celebra-tion of love and life.

    Opening Ceremonies will fea-ture a one act play and there will be special presentations on the hour throughout the event.

    There is one question to keep in mind as you think about par-ticipating. What do patients fi nd out when they are diagnosed with cancer? The doctor or surgeon they speak to probably refers them to information available through the treating hospital. American Cancer Society supports all of the doctors and the clinics and their own offi ces with information
