THAYER -- Relay for Life activities in Oregon County are gearing up and local Relay for Life organizer Janie Thompson said two events are already scheduled in March.
The Thayer City Hall Relay for Life Team will hold a bowling tournament at Thayer Lanes March 3, starting at 10 a.m.
Thayer Lanes is located on Nettleton Avenue in Thayer.
The tournament will be a 9-pin, no tap, bowling tournament with an entry fee of $10 per person.
Sign-up for the tournament will continue until 10 a.m. March 3.
The second event, a poker run, will be held March 4 and is sponsored by the Alton-Thayer Elks Lodge 2545.
Beginning at 11 a.m., bikers are invited to meet in Thayer at Bullseye Convenience Store for the poker run.
Elks officials said anyone with a bike is invited to participate in the poker run which will end at the Elks Lodge in Thayer.
The entry fee is $15 per player with a 50 percent payback.
Elks officials said the more riders the more fun the poker run will be. For more information call Shorty Miller at 264-7976 or the Elks Lodge at 264-7070.
Proceeds from both events will go to the Thayer City Hall Relay for Life Team.
Thompson said last year Oregon County raised over $65,000 for the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life activities.
