A series of events to raise awareness of cancer issues will be held on Saturday, June 9 in Monticello. The annual cancer awareness celebration is sponsored by the Monticello Victims of Mill Tailings Exposure.

Events this year are dedicated to the memory of Marilee Bailey, a beloved Monticello resident who recently passed away from cancer. Bailey had spent the past years coordinating cancer screening through the district health department office.

A meal, provided by the Monticello Lions Club, will be served from 5 to 7 p.m. at the LDS Stake Center pavilion east of the Monticello Post Office.

Afterwards is the annual walk from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Monticello Memorial Mill Site Park. Luminaries line the path and honor cancer victims from the area. Your donations are deeply appreciated.

I think my mother was one of the first to victims to cancer. It has been 50 years since her death in 1962. My father worked at the mill for sometime as did many other Blanding Residents.

Marilee was a fun person when I knew her 35 years ago, I have no doubt she was a great lady in life. She deserves to be honored.
