THAYER -- The Thayer City Hall Team for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life is gearing up for the third consecutive year.
Fund-raising activities will start March 15. Unique Hair Design in Thayer, owned by Rachel Harris, will donate $1 March 15-18 for every haircut given at the salon. If it is not convenient for a person to get their hair cut during this time period a certificate will be given and the haircut will be given a different day, with proceeds still going to the American Cancer Society. Harris can be reached at 264-3647 to schedule an appointment. Unique Hair Design is located in the Town and Country Plaza.
Also on March 15 Warm Fork Restaurant will donate a portion of their sales to the fund -raiser. The restaurant is owned by Mike and Sharon Byer.
April 1 is the date for the Third Annual Jail and Bail. This is where anyone can have someone "jailed" for $5. It will cost $25 for that person to get out of jail.
On April 15 the Warm Fork Restaurant will again donate a portion of the day's sales to the American Cancer Society.
The Thayer City Hall Relay for Life Team is planning a bowling tournament May 7 at Thayer Lanes starting at 10 a.m. It will cost $10 to enter the tournament and first place trophies will be presented. Proceeds from the tournament will go to the American Cancer Society.
