County employees at the Putnam Administration building went all out to support those with breast cancer during their Pink-Out event on Thursday, Oct. 29. The group wore pink from head to toe and had a ceremony to honor custodian and breast cancer survivor, Annie Parks and remember Linda Sadler, an employee of the Finance department who lost her life to breast cancer several years ago and all others that have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The Planning and Zoning Department chose to dress up in pink, 70s-style outfits for the occasion while the Finance Department chose to dress as pink superheroes in tutus.

At around 2:30 that afternoon, the group met for light refreshments with lots of pink for breast cancer awareness that were prepared by Dorothy Farley. They then released balloons in honor of the brave people who have dealt with and are dealing with breast cancer.
