“Kids Against Cancer”

The Delphos St. John’s Elementary School supported the Delphos Relay for Life with a “Kids Against Cancer” shirt sale.  The students were able to wear the shirts to school today.  Slushes were also sold as a fundraiser and students will be enjoying those in the afternoon, perfect for the muggy weather!  Thanks K-6 for your support of the Delphos Relay for Life!
