CROSSVILLE — The Fairfield Glade Community Club (FGCC) announces the “Shave Your Head for the Cause” fundraising campaign to support Relay for Life. The fundraising began with an offer by Sam McAdoo, ACC Inspector, to shave his head on April 2 to support a very special team member who is courageously fighting the battle. Ken Fore, Fairfield Glade Sewer Department, had previously participated in a “Shave Your Head” campaign as a fundraiser and suggested that Fairfield Glade Community Club team members raise funds for the Relay for Life event on May 2 with this type of program. This one gesture has turned into a record number of offers by team members and board members alike to participate in the “Shave Your Head” campaign. There are currently 15 volunteers for an estimated total donation of $3,450 that have agreed to shave their head or face for a specified donation amount. The following volunteers have already reached their goal and have the shaved heads to prove it; Ken Fore, Thomas Hawn, Tim Revis, Bill Heidle, Greg Reppert, Keith Gardner, Jason Winningham, Ray Hood, Joe Miller, Robert Jackson, and Tyler Lyon. There are offers on the table from Cindy Reppert, Abby Julian, Mike Pritchard, and General Manager Bob Weber. There are also three Fairfield Glade Community Club board members, Phil Gover, Pete Cahill, and Harry Price, who have agreed to shave their heads all together for a $2,500 donation to support the Relay for Life fundraiser. Any donation toward your favorite “shaved head” will go a long way toward supporting this worthwhile cause. Fairfield Glade Community Club would like to thank Marsha Kelly from the Fairfield Glade Beauty Shop who has volunteered to perform all these haircuts at no charge. The Fairfield Glade Community Club team members are raising money to support Relay for Life through a number of events including Cupcake Wars, Cheer for Chocolate, Silent Auctions, Raffles and Candy Bar Sales. So far, through these fundraising activities, close to $5,000 has been raised with the hope of encouraging additional donations by shaving more heads. For more information, please contact Pat Davis at 707-2147.

Hydrangeas fascinate both gardeners and artists because unlike most other plants, the color of hydrangea flowers can change dramatically. Painting hydrangeas is a satisfying way to enhance and preserve their colorful beauty.
Enjoying Nature: Who doesn't love spiders?
Who doesn't love spiders? Probably just about everyone hates spiders, yet many more people in the U.S. die from pet dog or pet cat bites than spider bites. Most information that I can find states that probably only one or two people per year die from spider bites in the U.S. Of more than 3,500 species of spiders in the U.S., only the black widow and the brown recluse are a threat to humans.
