The Laurens County Relay For Life Survivor Dinner held last night at St. James United Methodist Church. The evening was deemed a success, as final preparations are made for this year’s Relay, one week away.
PC’s Aaron Dover of Clinton sang for those gathered. Rev. James Bates of Poplar Springs Church spoke, sharing his experience as a survivor.
A total of 95 survivors, guests, and volunteers were in attendance last night.
