As we leave New Year's Day in our rear view mirror, it's that time of year to start looking forward on the calendar to the Relay For Life of Sachem. The relay season officially begins tonight with its kickoff meeting at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Sachem East.
The relay event itself will take place over a two-day period on June 8 and 9 at High School East in Farmingville.
A Sachem Patch Facebook follower reminded the community of tonight's meeting with a rallying cry:
Help us Dream Big, Hope Big, Relay Big. The Relay For Life of Sachem kickoff celebration is tomorrow, Thursday, Jan. 31 at 7pm in the EAST auditorium. ONE DAY...ONE NIGHT...ONE COMMUNITY...OUR FIGHT...WE ARE SACHEM!
Sachem Patch will continue to cover any developments leading up to the event as well as the relay itself. The official Sachem Relay for Life site is available here.
