The Relay For Life of Scotland County’ annual Survivor Banquet was held Thursday at Laurinburg Presbyterian Church, where the crowd of cancer survivors and caregivers enjoyed food and games — and uplifting stories were shared from table to table. Co-Chairman Scott Thomas welcomed the crowd, Scotland County Sheriff Ralph Kersey shared his survivor story and two songs, Angie Tyson shared a song, and attendees received their survivor shirts to wear during the Relay For Life event on Sept. 8 at Scotland High’s Pate Stadium from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
