More teams sought for Kane Relay For Life

July 23, 2012

The Kane area always has been a major supporter of the annual Relay For Life to benefit the American Cancer Society.
This year, however, interest in the major fundraiser appears to have waned.
Only four teams so far have registered to participate in the Relay For Life to be held Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Kane High School track.
"Kane was once very, very big among our Relays," Katie Dupree said Monday. "But this year we only have four teams. That's very low for Kane. Some of our former teams didn't have new people to take over."

Family Dollar opens in Kane

July 23, 2012

A line of people gathered on Saturday July 21 at the doors of the Family Dollar Store for their 8 a.m. official grand opening ceremony of the 519 North Fraley Street location.  The Kane Family Dollar store gave away two youth bicycles to one lucky boy and girl and $5 gift cards to the first 50 patrons.  Patrons were also invited to enjoy refreshments and sales throughout the day.  Acting Manager Cindy Oyler is unsure of exactly how many patrons the Family Dollar of Kane saw over their grand opening weekend but she and her staff were “very busy serving a lot of people.”
