To the Editor:

It is that time of the year again when the Crystal Lake Kiwanis Club rallies its troops and asks for you to assist us in raising money to find a cure for pediatric cancer.

We have done well in raising thousands of dollars in the past three years to find a cure. (Our dedicated McHenry neighbors to the north have really excelled with both high schools and the town combining efforts to raise the much-needed funds. Hats off to them.) In Crystal Lake, the Crystal Lake South Key Club is participating again with its students as well.

We are hosting a Shavathon from 3-6 p.m. Friday at McHenry County College in the Michael Luecht Amphitheater. During the event, we line up volunteer licensed barbers to shave the heads of those valiant enough to raise money for this cause. Please spread the word and check out our website out: www.kiwaniscrystallake.com.

It is easy to sign up and ask your friends to donate; after all, your hair will grow back.

Thanks again, by the way, to all of the volunteers and participants of the super successful Santa Run last December. We are planning for the second annual run already and welcome all who want to a part of it. The Kiwanis meet the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at noon for lunch at the Crystal Lake Country Club. See you there.
