The City of Lewes is participating for the seventh year in a national campaign to create awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms. Volunteers will “Turn The Towns Teal” by tying ribbons to the light poles in the Lewes historic business district on Friday, September 2 at Noon. The awareness initiative annually takes place in September, which is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. The Delaware Ovarian Cancer Foundation sponsors this Campaign in its efforts to help save more women’s lives.
Lewes Mayor Andrew Williams and other elected officials will join the “Turn The Towns Teal” volunteers as they tie the first ribbon on a light pole adjacent to the Savannah Road entrance of Zwaanendael Park next to the Zwaanendael Museum. The volunteers will continue the process on the streets surrounding Second Street. Educational brochures will be available at local merchants to provide additional information for women.
