Planet Head Day

Planet Head Day

The 10th Planet Head Day that was held on Feb. 20 in Wieden Gymnasium was a huge success and raised nearly $20,000 this year. The event was sponsored by UMPI and C-A-N-C-E-R [Caring Area Neighbors for Cancer Education and Recovery]. Nearly 50 County citizens had their heads shaved, while others donned bald caps, and had them painted to look like planets, moons, comets, and other celestial bodies. Planet Head Day is the major fundraising event for C-A-N-C-E-R and all monies raised during the event stays in the County and helps those diagnosed or are in treatment for cancer. Pizza Hut again provided free pizza, water was available courtesy of Aroostook Trusses, and Carol Soucy baked and donated a birthday cake for the 86th anniversary of Pluto’s discovery.
