In past years, the relay had been at the Central Lyon track on a Friday night in June. Last year, due to the flood, it was postponed to August. Relay organizers have decided to stick with an August relay this year. But other details have changed as well. One of the organizers of the event, Ronda Arends tells us more.

The downtown Rock Rapids location at the Forster Community Center will change the atmosphere somewhat, but Arends says there will still be the opportunity to do laps such as the survivor lap at the event on Wednesday, August 12th.

She says they’ll still have a luminaria ceremony.

She says that if you want to purchase a luminaria, you can call her at 712-541-7189.
