Le Village’s newest member has announced the date for its signature event.

The Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life fundraiser in Maxville will take place Friday June 7 at the Fairgrounds from 6 p.m. to midnight.

The cancer society used World Cancer Day as the backdrop to make the announcement at Stomping Grounds in Cornwall.

“We’re so pleased to be a part of Le Village and we wanted to get the word out about Relay for Life because it has become such a big part of our region,” said Allison St-Jean of the local cancer society office.

There will be a James Bond theme to this year’s event as the cancer society recruits ‘special agents’ in a mission against cancer.

The cancer society is located at 14 Montreal Road.
