Halle Williams-Seip, daughter of Decatur residents Ciera Williams and Nick Seip, is one of two honorary co-chairs chosen by the Adams County Relay for Life Committee to walk the first lap at this year's event at Adams Central June 24-25.
Halle, who is now three years old, was diagnosed with medulloblastoma just weeks after her first birthday. Medulloblastoma is a rapidly-growing brain tumor that originates in the cerebellum.
Adams County's annual Relay for Life will kick off at 6 p.m. Friday and continue through 11:15 a.m. on Saturday.
For the third successive year, the event will be held at the Adams Central football field.
The schedule of activities follows.
5 p.m. — Silent auction setup.
5-8 p.m. — Dinner served by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
With an estimated $4.5 million to $4.6 million cost for what is proposed as the first city-county building in Adams County history, paying for it is a major matter.
At a two and a half hour special meeting of the Adams County commissioners on Tuesday to unveil the plans, and the reasons for such plans, Todd Samuelson of H.J. Umbaugh and Associates, an accounting firm in Plymouth, reported on how financing might operate.
