Massena/Louisville Relay for Life looking for new volunteers, committee members


MASSENA — With several longtime committee members stepping down, organizers of this year’s Massena/Louisville Relay for Life are looking for more volunteers to step forward to assist in planning for the event.

Their next meeting is scheduled for 6 tonight at the Greater Massena Chamber of Commerce, 16 Church St.

Event Chairwoman Denise M. Furnace said the committee has three returning volunteers and members.

Anyone who attends tonight’s meeting can learn about the opportunities available to assist in planning for the event, which will be held June 6 and 7 at the Louisville Community Center.

Ms. Furnace said there will be two meetings in January to get ready for the Feb. 4 kickoff at the chamber office.

A number of positions are available for volunteers, Ms. Furnace said. Among the chair positions are registration and accounting, luminaria, publicity, event co-chairman and sponsorships.

“There are many other possible chair seats, but these ones are vital to a successful event. If these positions are not filled, our present committee members will have to take on additional jobs,” she said.

Anyone who can’t make tonight’s meeting can attend the next one Jan. 21 or contact Ms. Furnace at 769-7186 or
