Aubree Crane, 8, a student at Lakes Elementary School, grew her hair out and recently donated 10 inches of it to Locks of Love. Aubree said, “I don’t miss my long hair, and now it can go to someone who doesn’t have any hair.” She loves her new cut, done by Carrie Marie at Genesis Salon and Day Spa in Rockford.
An unexpectedly beautiful spring day failed to dampen the enthusiasm among Ric’s Food Centers fans during the Spring Taste of Ric’s on Saturday, May 7. The store parking lot was packed, but inside an improved spacing of favorite taste treats made for easy navigation among dozens of vendors offering delicious samples. At least three shoppers referred to the event as the Ric’s “party” and said they look forward to the thank-you day Ric’s offers to shoppers both regular and new.
