Bell County Relay for Life was held Saturday night with food, fun and games. But, most importantly it was a night to help the community attack cancer. Survivors were celebrated at opening ceremonies at 4 p.m., followed by Bell County’s Got Talent. To prepare for the event, Bell County Painted the Town Purple. From team members to volunteers, the community wants to remember those we’ve lost, help those affected today and make a difference.
