Opening ceremonies will begin at 6 p.m. on the football field. All cancer survivors are asked to meet in front of the stage by 5:45.

Activities include bagpipes, local bands and singers and special appearance by the Risen Son Quartet.

A cake walk will be held later in the evening, hosted by VF Jeanswear. The kids area is also sponsored by VF Jeanswear. There will be lots of food, raffles and activities for all.
