Plans are already underway for next year’s Washington Relay for Life event. The event chair for the event, Ruchel Hiller states that there are a few changes for next year, including the date. Next year’s event will be held on August 23 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will have a Tailgating Against Cancer theme since it is the weekend before the first University of Iowa football game. Hiller states that the event has been changed from its usual June date because there are numerous festivals in the county in June and they are hoping to increase overall county involvement.
Also, the organization is currently looking for more volunteers and fresh ideas.
