Twas the Night Before Relay

T’was the night before Relay when all around the school,
All the teams were a prepping, while the air was now cool
Their decorations were hung from the canopies with care,
In hopes that their prizes soon would be there.

The children were excited to set up the tent,
Counting down hours till the big event.
Team members in white, and the committee in blue,
Our survivors in purple of a beautiful hue.

When over on the field there arose such a clatter,
As Don does his sound check, our audio does matter.
Away to the stage the kids went like a flash,
To dance around silly, having their own little bash.

Now all the team captains have got home to rest,
To be ready to for Relay for Life of LivermoreACS is the best!
We will raise as much money as possible,
For the American Cancer Society, and be joyful.

Tomorrow will come and we will walk for a cure,
We will make our goal, of that I am sure.
With an auction, raffles, and music galore,
By the end you won’t even notice your feet are sore.

Come Sunday morning we will all be tired,
And the people that stay will much be admired.
To find a cure for Cancer is our cause,
And all the people that help deserve an applause.

I adored the 2-hour delay. Then, I spent 4-9 in beautiful weather prepping EV for the event.
Moral of the Story: After the rains, came beauty...a promise that hasn't been broken.
