With Robin’s Nest of Lebec…

Nine Robin’s Nest preschoolers collected $107 in change and a few small bills for the Relay For Life. Robin’s Nesters would like to challenge local businesses, friends and families to match or add to their donation. Other options to show your support would be to definitely show up to the festivities on June 21st at the high school. Cancer doesn’t sleep, and neither will “The Cancer Crushers!” You can make donations and follow our team at

…and with the students of Frazier Park School

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I wanted to let you all know about the amazing success of the first-ever American Cancer Society Relay Recess Program held at Frazier Park Elementary School.

The school decided to conduct a Penny Drive to help raise funds for the Relay For Life of the Mountain Communities (The relay event is June 21 at Frazier Mountain High School).

Each classroom was given a purple bucket to collect the money. A prize went to the top class. Guess what? In less than two weeks time, students and teachers managed to collect $169.20! Top honors went to Mr. Petty’s 3rd grade class. They filled that purple bucket with $48! Way to go Bobcats!

This is a public thank you to Principal Keri St. Jeor and all the teachers who pulled this together in such a short time frame. Thank you to all the students who participated—you are making a difference and I hope you had fun doing it.

Plans are already underway to expand our Relay Recess Program next year with an earlier start date, so stay tuned.

June Schmidt, Event Chair
Relay For Life of the Mountain Communities

Fun Note: With a goal to raise $33,000, Schmidt writes: “We are now at 70% of our goal with $23,245.89. See what a little faith will do? “ Let’s join in to make the goal. —Editor

The main event is June 21 at the FMHS football field.
