Students from Oysterponds and Greenport elementary schools participated in a joint relay recess to benefit the American Cancer Society on Friday on the football field at Greenport School.
The day started with a parade around the track featuring the entire Greenport Elementary School and Oysterponds students from the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. After the parade, the fourth, fifith and sixth grades competed against one another in wacky relay races.
The Early Act clubs at both schools have been raising money to help support the town's Relay for Life event, which will be held on Saturday, June 1 in Peconic.
Southold Town's Relay for Life Chairperson Melina Angelson was pleased with the turnout and support from both schools. In addition to the elementary students participation, Angelson said a number of clubs from Greenport High School will be represented at the Relay for Life event as well.
