AYER -- Get ready to paint the town purple on Saturday, May 18, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. That's when Main Street in Ayer will be "painted" all the shades of purple. It's all part of the Greater Ayer Relay for Life annual event to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society.

At press time, only five vendor/crafter spaces remain. The table space rental fee is $25 (payable to the American Cancer Society). Contact Darlene Chesbrough at SYMSOL46@ yahoo.com or 978-772-2666 (evenings) for details.

Join us and your local community as Relay Team members and vendors transform Main Street with fun activities and fundraisers.

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's largest event and the world's biggest fundraiser with more than 3 million participants. During this overnight community event, teams walk around a track, relay-style, to raise funds, celebrate survivorship, and remember those lost to cancer.

Come help the American Cancer Society "Paint the Town Purple" in support of Relay For Life.
