The Smithers Relay for Life committee is re-energized but still looking for new members to volunteer for the annual event.

“Now that we’re into the new year, Relay for Life plans are starting to really take off,” said committee co-chair Katherine Dow. “We’re beginning initial planning and organizational work in the coming weeks but we are still in desperate need of some new members to help us plan this awesome event.”

The committee is having an open meeting on Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. upstairs at the Alpenhorn Pub and Bistro so people in the community can learn more about what is needed for the event to be successful.

“Even if you’re still not completely sure you can commit to the cause, we’d love to have you out anyway, to get some more information on this very important event,” Dow said.
