Miller’s Merry Manor residents, staff and visitors released more than 40 balloons on Friday, Aug. 21, to honor of cancer patients, survivors and those who lost their battle with the disease.
The event took place early Friday morning to support the upcoming Wabash County Relay for Life on Saturday, Aug. 29.
“We wanted to bring the Relay for Life to our residents,” event coordinator Jami Bartel told the Paper of Wabash. “Some of them can’t go down to Paradise Spring, so we started this three years ago and this is the best turnout we’ve had so far.
“So it’s definitely growing, that’s for sure. I’m very proud of this event.”
