In 2009, Rebecca Luthman had numerous luminaria and 14 torches taken out in her name by members of the public and the team formed to support her.
For Melissa Deal, the torches were the most she had ever seen for one person. Deal, who has been involved with the luminaria and the torches for approximately five years, returned this year to organizing the luminaria for the 15th annual Relay for Life.
While the torches have been discontinued, Deal and the rest of the Relay for Life Committee have given a couple twists to the luminaria.
