One of the highlights of the upcoming “Spring Fever Days” in Emo is the head-shaving at The Hair and Body Care Shoppe.
With the proceeds going to Tamarack House in Thunder Bay, this event is extremely important. The head-shaving only can be successful if people volunteer to shave their heads or, in the case of a few fellows, their beard.
Please consider making the sacrifice for those fighting cancer. Tamarack House is a great place to stay for those seeking treatment.
Start collecting from friends, relatives, and co-workers. You also can challenge others to take part and register as soon as possible.
Let's make this year's “Cuts for Cancer” the best ever.
