JUNEAU - Anyone interested in finding out more about the American Cancer Society's Juneau-Douglas Relay For Life is invited to attend the 2009 Relay For Life Kickoff. This year's theme is: "Celebrate 25 Years of Hope". The meeting will be at Thursday, Jan. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Nugget Mall in the space across from Radio Shack.
