Relay Cut Short

Posted by wlpo on June 19, 2010

Mother Nature wasn’t kind to hundreds who showed up ready to stay overnight at Streator’s City Park.

After delaying the start of the 14th annual La Salle County Relay for Life an hour due to weather, organizers were able to hold opening ceremonies and a survivor’s lap before another round of storms forced the cancellation of the relay at around 8:45.

During opening ceremonies, this year’s relay was dedicated to late Streator Mayor Ray Schmitt who died earlier this year.  Schmitt was credited with being a big backer of Relay for Life.
