St. Baldrick's shearing set Sunday
If you missed your chance last weekend get sheared and help fight childhood cancers, don't lose your head.
There's another opportunity this weekend.
On Sunday, April 1, Tomlinson Middle School will be buzzing as TeamBrent sponsors its eighth annual St. Baldrick's shearing.
Doors open at 10:45 a.m. and clipping by stylists from Salon V will continue until 3 p.m.

The event will feature a variety of foods and music provided by a DJ, plus face painting and head painting, TeamBrent said in a news release. Professional photographers from two local studios also will be on hand.
A bake sale will be conducted, and two food vendors' trucks -- Skinny Pines brick oven pizza and Christophe's Crepes -- will be parked out front serving breakfast and lunch, according to the release.
Healthy adults will be able to undergo a simple mouth swab to join the bone-marrow registry maintained by the National Marrow Donor Program. At last year's TeamBrent event, more than 100 people joined the organization's Be the Match registry, according to the release.
The registry matches donors with patients for whom transplanted stem cells often are life-saving, according to the registry's web site.
No reservations are necessary for shearing or mouth swabs. Donations also may be made online.
