Sibley, Iowa — It’s Daffodil Days time again for the American Cancer Society. A week ago we told you about the O’Brien County American Cancer Society’s Daffodil Days arrangement and preparations for Relay for Life this summer. This time we’re featuring the Osceola County chapter of the American Cancer Society and their Daffodil Days and Relay For Life plans.
Cindy Iedema, the spokesperson for the Osceola Chapter tells us about their Daffodil Days campaign.
She says 2013 marks the 40th anniversary for the American Cancer Society’s Daffodil Days program. The bright
yellow daffodil is the American Cancer Society’s symbol of hope in the fight against cancer. Proceeds from the sale help save lives through cancer prevention or early detection, through support — during and after a patient’s cancer diagnosis, and through continuing cancer research.
Iedema says you do have a little time before orders need to be in, but she encourages you to call soon.
She says you can also call Caryline Lowe with the Sioux City office at 712-560-8669.
She says in preparation for this summer’s Relay For Life, there’s a special basketball fundraiser coming up in March.
She says the other teams will have food and beverages for sale. Other activities such as face painting will also be available. It’ll be at the S-O High School Gym.
Iedema says it’s not too late to get a team together. You can call Jackie Kannengieter at 712-461-1919 or Lori White at 712-754-2628., or you can always call Caryline Lowe at 712-560-8669.
The Osceola County Relay For Life is Friday, August 2, 2013 at the Sibley/Ocheyedan Track.
