Plenty of activities this weekend

Published 12:00 am Friday, May 3, 2002

Looking for something to do on Saturday? You’ll find nothing lacking in Pike County …

· Softball and baseball games aside, our weekend is filled with opportunities to enjoy our community while benefiting a worthy cause:

· The Relay for Life Celebration Bus comes to Troy at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Bicentennial Park. This bus is, as Relay supporters will say, a "big deal." It’s making a cross-country tour on its way to Washington, D.C., and local volunteers are excited that Troy was among the stops on that tour. The public is invited to come out and show their support for the Relay for Life cause.

And if you’re looking to benefit Relay for Life causes, this weekend offers plenty of chances to do just that. Yard sales at SARHA and at Troy

Elementary School, a "Cuts for Cancer" day at Signature Hair Designs, and the Children’s Fun for Hope carnival event hosted by the First Baptist Church all benefit Relay for Life. And they all offer wholesome, fun activities for your family. See our calendar on Page 2 for more details.


Saturday evening, the annual gala to benefit the Senior Colley Complex takes place at the Troy Country Club. Complete with dancing, food and a silent auction, the event raises thousands of dollars for the ever-growing senior program in Troy. Proceeds from the event will benefit the foundation which helps fund the complex’s many programs, from art to square dancing to educational programs. Tickets for the auction are $25 each and are still available at the Colley Senior Complex or from the Pike County Chamber of Commerce.

· In Brundidge, the annual Trade Days event will bring hundreds of people to the streets and stores. It’s a great opportunity to rediscover the treasure of Brundidge and to support our local merchants and business owners.

We hope you’ll take advantage of all that our community has to offer this weekend.
