Relay For Life 'Paints the Town Purple' March 22

ARLINGTON — The Arlington Relay For Life will "Paint the Town Purple" in the city's downtown from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 22.

Legion Park on Olympic Avenue will serve as the site for live music, kids' activities and fundraising booths in support of the American Cancer Society.

At 1 p.m., a scavenger hunt will challenge teams to find clues from around town, and the first teams back will win prizes.

The Playa Bonita Mexican restaurant has pledged 20 percent of its proceeds for the day to the Arlington Relay, while fellow Olympic Avenue business Country Rose will be giving 20 percent of its own proceeds from the hours of 5-8 p.m.

The Arlington Relay For Life itself is set for June 21-22, but in the meantime, its next "Relay Rally" meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 8, from 7-8 p.m. at the Stillaguamish Senior Center, located at 18308 Smokey Point Blvd. in Arlington.
