Brav­ing the shave

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Jodie Dixon Reporter jodie.dixon@isistc­

I AM now count­ing down the sleeps un­til I shave my head for a cure.

Let me just say, I am very ner­vous. My fam­ily is look­ing for­ward to laugh­ing at my hair­less head and I have promised to send pho­tos.

I have re­ceived a great amount of sup­port and I thank you all for spon­sor­ing me.

I will be in Childers on Sun­day from 1pm at the Isis RSL. Feel free to pop on down and en­joy the fun and games. I am putting my hair on the line for char­ity and en­cour­age oth­ers to join in.

For the op­por­tu­nity to shave my head, make a do­na­tion of $100 or more. I have Kevin, my piggy bank, to col­lect your do­na­tion and he is on the desk of Town and Coun­try. For ev­ery do­na­tion of $2 you can ask for a re­ceipt as your do­na­tion is tax de­ductible.

It’s a great cause and I hope more peo­ple sign up.

I want to con­grat­u­late Heather Parry on her achieve­ments. For the past 50 years she has been serv­ing the com­mu­nity as a JP. Can you imag­ine how many times she has signed and stamped le­gal doc­u­ments?

We need more peo­ple in the world just like you, Heather.

This Satur­day night the Down Un­der Spirit Team will be in Childers to set up in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the su­per­nat­u­ral ac­tiv­ity around the town. Do you be­lieve in ghosts?

Fri­day morn­ing Charts will host this year’s In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day break­fast. The com­mu­nity is en­cour­aged to take part.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion con­tact the gallery di­rectly. Let us know at Town and Coun­try your story, and all of your com­ing events.

It’s a great cause and I hope more peo­ple sign up.
