SCRANTON — The Lung Cancer Alliance PA Chapter recently meet to plan events to be held during November, Lung Cancer Awareness Month.

Kicking off the month with a flag garden, the group will once again cover the front lawn of the Lackawanna County Courthouse with flags, one to honor each lung cancer death in 2014. The garden will be “planted” at 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1.

The Annual Shine A Light event will be held at the Courthouse Square in Scranton from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Thursday, Nov. 5, Registration is suggested and can be done online at lungcanceralliance.org.

This free event will highlight and honor those affected by lung cancer. Photos will be shown and lights will be given to those in attendance. Anyone attending is asked to gather at the tent in front of the courthouse. Anyone wishing to add a photo to the slide show can email it to karscott312@gmail.com.
