The Cassville Democrat donated $704 to the South Barry County Relay for Life Committee this past week. The contribution represents half the proceeds from a special advertising section that promoted the local Relay effort in the July 16 issue of the Cassville Democrat. "We want to thank all the local businesses who supported this section and supported our donation to Relay for Life," said Lisa Schlichtman, editor. "This is such a worthwhile cause, and we are pleased to be a part of raising money for cancer research."

Richards also served as a member of the 2008 South Barry County Relay for Life planning committee.
