On the cutting edge: Centraide clip-art


Last Monday, the atrium of the library building was a bustling place, as Concordians lined up to have their hair cut for Centraide.

Nearly $800 was raised by good sports like Vince MacDougall (Mail Services), who sacrificed his moustache of 25 years, and Brent Wattie (Copier Operations) and Glenn Weir (Carpentry), who had their heads shaved.

The organizers would like to thank Normand Charbonneau and his team from Coiffure Normand.

Tickets were sold for a raffle, and the winners of some great entertainment toys were Irvin Dudeck, Dominique Derome, Dina Azuelos and Anna Simone.

The winners of recent weekly draws of donors include Angie Trubiano, retiree Bruce English, Judith Herz, Ronald Proud, Frederick Lowy, Waheeda Hamid, Shirley McLeod, Gary Katch, Mona Senecal, Helen Eng, Paul Chesser, Janis Steele, Frank Chalk, Diamantoudi Effrosyni and Claude Boisvert.

The goal of this year's Centraide campaign is $140,000. So far, $88,000 have been pledged. The campaign ends in December, and Nancy Curran, who organized the barbershop event, is confident the goal can be reached.

"These campaigns provide a great opportunity to bring the students and staff together and to make students aware of Centraide's work," she added.
