Relay For Life Rebounds

Under Sunny Milford Skies

At times cheerful, at times tearful, the annual Otsego County Relay for Life is underway at this hour in Milford’s Wilber Park, after guests speakers shared inspirational stories, and Heather Henderson of Schenevus, in particular, gave a rousing call to fight the scourge that has taken so many loved ones from among us.  In top photo, leading off survivors on the first circuit of the track, Henderson, left, holds up the banner, joined by Tracy Baker, Cherry Valley; Art Boden, Cooperstown, and Laura Emmett, Oneonta.  Inset left, Otsego County’s freshman Assemblyman John Salka, R-Brookfield, shares the story of his daughter, Emmy, who developed brain cancer and passed away in 2015 at age 22.  Inset right, mom Elaine Kellogg marches with her daughter, cancer fighter Laurene Gage.  The ladies, from Burlington Flats, wave at cheering passersby when family members  joined survivors in the second loop.  The American Legion Riders and the Elite Dance Academy, both from Oneonta, participated in this afternoon activities.   The Relay continued until 10 p.m.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
