Dear Ray, Cecilia, Catherine, Drew, and Betsy:


Good news! Victoria Trask is going to re-start Team Menlo for the American
Cancer Society Relay for Life. This team houses participants from the
Police Department, the Fire Department, and (we hope!) the City Council. I
am hoping the team goes online this week (Victoria?) and then you can join
by clicking here: www.relayforlife.org/menloparkca and following the


The commitment is pretty simple-sign up, fundraise or donate (we try to have
each person raise a minimum of $100 but the sky is the limit), and show up
for some or all of the Relay at Burgess Park on July 27th (or if that is
impossible, do your fundraising and we will count you as a virtual team
member. We know you are busy).


But today I am writing to tell you about a project we have to popularize the

We will be working with downtown businesses to feature Purple Relay related
items or feature purple items. The profusion of purple prompts customers to
ask about the purple all around town, and then they learn about Relay! This
year we would like to try it just for the Saturday of Relay (many
communities do a whole week). We can ask the businesses to feature purple
but we would also like permission to do some Purple Bows and wraps on poles
on Santa Cruz avenue and possibly El Camino Real. We would be mindful of not
interfering with traffic, safety, or other functions and promise to take
them down on Sunday (we have a bevy of volunteers to help with this).


Hoping to become the Biggest Little Relay Town!

Please advise,


Amy Boggs
