Reg Conn Park will be closed to the public for the next few weeks due to a water break. Residents are asked to please stay clear of the park entrances at Smith and Dewdney Avenue during this time.

Elementary student donates hair for cancer

In the Feb. 27 edition of “The Rundown” I reported on David Stoddart School student Emma Blain—12 years old—who has spent the last few months raising money for cancer awareness. Blain has now raised $800 for cancer research, in addition to donating her hair.

Blain initially wanted to cut eight inches of hair off, but her whole pony tail ended up being 12 inches, so that’s what she submitted. She loves her new haircut and “can’t wait to grow it out and do it all over again”, says her mother Jennifer. Congratulations on all your hard work, Emma! You really have made a difference and should be proud.
