Get Ready to “Paint the County Purple”

Paint Colusa County Purple FlyerThe American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Colusa County is holding its “Paint the County Purple” event starting Monday, August 3rd, through August 7th, 2015.

The community is asked to decorate storefronts, houses, lawns, trees or anything for “Paint the County Purple”, which helps raise awareness for the Relay for Life Event.

A friendly competition will be held with a judging held throughout the day on August 7th. Judging will be based on the decorations, and one winner will be chosen as best decorated. A traveling trophy will be presented to the 2015 winner to display proudly until 2015 where it will travel on to the next “Paint the County Purple” winner.

The communities of Arbuckle, Colusa, Maxwell, Williams, Grimes and Princeton will ALL have the opportunity to decorate their towns with the signature American Cancer Society Purple – all in good fun and awareness.

• Paint your storefront window purple
