THAYER -- The St. Paul United Methodist Church Anglers Relay for Life Team's blue toilet made quite an impression in the quest to raise funds to fight cancer last year, so team members decided to try it again this year.
The blue toilet arrived at Thayer City Hall March 20 and Thayer Mayor Merle Williams was on hand to greet its arrival and to encourage residents in the area to donate to the Relay for Life fund.
According to Bob Cicigoi, team member, "This year we have added a new twist to the Blue Toilet Campaign. For people wanting to avoid having a blue toilet placed in their driveway, they can do so by purchasing Blue Toilet Insurance."
Cicigoi said to purchase this insurance all one has to do is call one of the Blue Toilet Insurance Agents and for a $25 donation the blue toilet will not come to your driveway.
The Blue Toilet Insurance agents are: Ruth Stevens, 264-3571; Clara Williams, 264-7888; John Yancey, 264-2862; or Bob Cicigoi, 264-2862.
"However, you can still have the blue toilet delivered to one of your close friend's driveway by calling one of our agents," Cicigoi said.
St. Paul's relay theme this year is, Fishing for a Cure.
Cicigoi said some of the other fundraising events the Anglers will participate in to raise funds for the local Relay for Life are: bake sales, a church donation supper, hot dog and hamburger cook-out, half moon and star sales, a car wash, making and selling quilts, selling food and drinks at their campsite and a letter writing campaign.
The Anglers goal this year is to raise $5,000.
