Relay for Life

Rain won’t delay Relay

The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. Friday with a dinner honoring cancer survivors in the Oxford High School cafeteria. Original plans are to then move the Relay events to the OHS football field. However, a 70-percent chance of rain Friday night could force organizers to move the event to the Oxford-University United Methodist Church. (April 28, 2010, Page 1)

        The rivalry between the University of Mississippi and Mississippi State University is in full swing this month, although this time the two universities won’t be competing for an Egg Bowl trophy. Instead, they will be competing to see who can raise the most money to help cure cancer.
