A-B to host Luminaria Festival

The Alderson-Broaddus Relay For Life Committee will host its second Luminaria Festival on Thursday.

The event will kick off at 8 p.m. on the Apollo Quad with Kan Jam, corn hole games and croquet. Each game will cost 25 cents per turn. The committee also will draw for an iPod Shuffle at this time.

At 9:30 p.m., the Luminaria service will take place. This is a time for students and members of the college community to unite to remember and honor those who have had cancer. The ceremony will include a presentation of the luminaria bags and a candle lighting. Coach Dennis Creehan, A-B’s athletic director, and Philippi Baptist Church minister Jon Villers will share his thoughts.

The ceremony is free. Luminaria bag sales will be available for $5 each that evening.
