The American Cancer Society Volunteer Leadership Council of Clearfield County will meet Feb. 25 at 5:30 p.m. at the American Cancer Society office, located along Second Street, Clearfield. Members will discuss programs and services provided to cancer patients in Clearfield County.

Feel Better sessions and eight patients stayed free at Hope Lodge for a total of 223 nights.
VLC members also discuss area fundraising events such as Relay For Life and Daffodil Days and their volunteer needs for the area. These are income events that help fund patient programs and services as well as research.
