Relay Postponed Until Saturday

By Staff | Jun 19, 2009

Because of the thunderstorms predicted for Friday evening, the Wetzel County Relay For Life has been postponed until Saturday. The location and times of all events will remain the same. It will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday and end at 6 a.m. Sunday, held on the Magnolia High School track.
