In the "before" photo on the right: Emma (7), Elizabeth (4), and Ellie Donnay (6) pose before their haircut. These girls have donated their hair to the Beautiful Lengths program. Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and the American Cancer Society to donate free wigs to women who have lost their hair from cancer. Above: Emma, Ellie, and Elizabeth holding their ponytail donations. This was Emma and Ellie’s second time donating hair. It was Elizabeth’s first time. It’s their way of honoring cancer survivors, especially their Uncle Larry and Aunt Sue. The Donnay sisters donated 29 combined inches of hair. The girls’ parents are Erin (Schiefelbein) and Kevin Donnay of Kimball. Submitted photos.

Friday, June 7, is the Early Bird deadline to register for the 2013 Ridgewater College Summer Camp set for July in Hutchinson and Willmar. The Hutchinson event will be Monday, July 22 through Thursday, July 25, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day. The Willmar camp is set for the same times but from Monday, July 29, through Thursday, Aug. 1.
The events provide numerous fun, hands-on and educational career and interest explorations for youth entering grades 5-8. Again this year, all campers will experience all sessions rather than having to choose. Campers will experience three to four new career/interests each day of camp. Depending on whether you attend camp in Hutchinson or Willmar, exploration sessions may include hydrology, taxidermy, photography, color science, electronics, animals, computer graphics, automotives, plant science, baking, the Native American culture, creative writing and arts, and a variety of health care such as occupational therapy and nursing.
