The Relay season 2010 begins

Editor:

First of all, we would like to say "Thank You" to Newcomerstown and the surrounding communities for making Relay 2009 such a huge success. The goal was $60,000 but together we raised over $76,000. Thank you to our teams, to our sponsors and to Newcomerstown and the surrounding communities for helping us exceed our goal!

We have already started planning for 2010. So mark your calendars ... Relay will be June 18 and 19, 2010.

This year's event chair is Amy Miller and the co-chair will be Melissa Stahl.

Miller is a teacher at the Newcomerstown Middle School and is also the Team Captain for the middle school. She lives in Strasburg and is married to Duane Miller. Miller has been involved with the Newcomerstown Relay for eight years.

Stahl is married to Gary Stahl and they have three children, Haley, Ty and Traye. They reside in Gnadenhutten and she is the Team Captain for St. Paul's United Church of Christ. Stahl has been involved with Relay for six years.

We are looking forward to Relay and are looking for energetic people to fill in a few holes on the committee.

This year, our goal will be $72,000. We also hope to add five new teams. There will be Team Captains' packets available at Ladies Nite Out on Dec. 1 at Christ United Methodist Church in Newcomerstown.

We are excited about Relay and we are glad to have all of you on board for this event. Relay would not be possible without all of you and your hard work.

We have not yet picked a theme for Relay 2010 but watch for it soon!
