Relay for Life 2011

I wanted to share some photos from last night's Relay for Life. Our little event raised over $54,000 for the American Cancer Society in its third year so we're tired, but happy. The rain held off, many miles were walked and many memories shared. Our team's inspiration was Nancy's favorite movie, "The Wizard of Oz".
 "There's no place like home HOPE."   ~Dorothy

Scarecrow: I don’t know… But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking… don’t they?
Dorothy: Yes, I guess you’re right."

"Someplace where there isn't any you suppose there is such a place, Toto? There must be. It's not a place you can get to by a boat or train. It's far, far away... behind the moon... beyond the rain."

 "As for you, my fine friend, you're a victim of disorganized thinking. You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom."  ~Wizard of Oz

 "Just follow the yellow brick road."  ~Glinda

"A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others."
~Wizard of Oz

the morning after...not exactly Emerald City!

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me."

 In Memory of Nancy ~ 1952-2010
"Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable."
-The Wizard of Oz
