Perham to go purple in support of Relay for Life

The American Cancer Society and Relay for Life of East Otter Tail County are asking local businesses to "paint the town purple" on July 1 to kick off the week leading up to Relay For Life on July 8 at 6 p.m. at the Perham High School.

Purple decorating kits are available at the Perham Chamber of Commerce office for $5. The kits can be used to decorate storefronts, window displays or anywhere else that might be noticeable. The Relay for Life Committee is hoping for 50 businesses to display purple during the week.

To learn more about the Paint the Town Purple campaign, or to get involved, contact Nancy Dockter at, or call 218-346-4663.
