Relay for Life events

The following are Relay for Life of Rowan County February events:
Like bowling? Become a member of the Relay For Life Once-a-Month Bowling Club. Food Lion’s A/R Relay team wants to challenge the whole community to get involved in the Relay Wide World of Sports for the entire year.
Gather a team of five members and select one Monday of four each month to bowl at 6 p.m. at Woodleaf Lanes, 1811 W. Jake Alexander Blvd.
Teammates can be different from month-to-month as long as there is a team of five. The cost is $15 per person each month and entitles the team member to two games, rental shoes, a practice bowling pass and an end-of-year party in January 2012. In addition, $5 of each member’s cost goes to Relay For Life.
To register, contact Frances at 704-603-4168 or fmorrisx1@netzero.net.
The Relay Once-a-Month Bowling Club is slated to begin Monday, Feb. 7, so get your team set up now.
• Order tickets for the Sweet Potato Queens’ “Sassy Swingin’ Soiree” on Saturday, Feb. 12.
It’s sure to be a great night to treat your Valentine or attend with just friends. The Rowan Big Band All-Stars will provide music from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the F&M Trolley Barn, 125 Liberty St., Salisbury.
There will be food, drinks, a silent auction, bingo, drawings and more activities. Donation is $25 per person and all proceeds go to Relay For Life of Rowan County and the American Cancer Society. Tickets will be available at the door.
• Concordia Lutheran Church’s Faith in Action Relay team will host a “County Fair” on Saturday, Feb. 19 at 5:30 p.m. in the Family Life Center, located at 185 Concordia Church Road, near NC 152 in China Grove.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of your American Cancer Society.
During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.
The 2011 Rowan County Relay will be held May 13-14.
