Nobles County Relay for Life was held on Friday evening in Worthington with less than perfect weather but a good crowd nevertheless. Meagan Meier, daughter of Tom & Apryl of Worthington and granddaughter of Elmer & Judy Wieneke, again sang the National Anthem at the opening ceremony and Mark Loosbrock read the "Point of Light". A part of the live auction included earning the chance to cut the ponytail of two young girls, one of them being Cheyenna John, daughter of James & Shelly. The lucky barbers (and highest bidders) were her dad, Jim, and her grandpa, Alvin John. On a side note, this is the second time that Cheyenna, a 5th grader at Adrian School has donated her hair to Locks of Love. What a great way to support the American Cancer Society.
