My Town Coopersville: Relay For Life gets a helping herd

COOPERSVILLE, Mich.—  Mayor Lloyd found a surprise visitor “grazing” on his lawn Wednesday morning.

The Mayor is one of the first people to find a cow staked out in his yard.  The cardboard cutout is actually part of a Relay For Life fundraising campaign by a team from Continental Dairy Facilities. Lawns outside the Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Development Authority were also among the first to welcome the herd.

A note accompanying each cow says the "herdsman" of Continental Dairy Facilities, LCC will move the cows if the property owner donates $10.  To request the herd be moved to a "pasture" of the property owner's choice, they must donate $15.  To ensure the herd doesn't come back and graze again, the property owner can donate $30 to Continental Dairy Facilities' Relay For Life team.

Donations can be made in person at Continental Dairy Facilities, LCC or on the company’s website. The Continental Dairy Facilities team hopes to raise $7,500 with the herds’ help.  You can track their progress here. 

Coopersville’s Relay For Life will take place July 11-12 at Coopersville High School.
