Paint the Town Purple
Howard Beach got their first dose of purple power leading up to the Second Annual Howard Beach Relay for Life on Sunday evening. The day’s festivities for “Paint the Town Purple” were capped off with a candle relay held in Fr. Dooley Hall at St. Helen’s School.
All day long, residents wore purple clothing and homes and businesses were decorated with purple ribbons and flags. There were children’s activities throughout the day and a ceremonial “Candle Relay” was held to celebrate cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost.
The Second Annual Relay for Life will be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 26th and 27th. For more information about the Relay and how you can help checkl www.relayforlife.org/howardbeachNY.
