Students, players join in Caring for Cameron
Students at Eagle River Elementary School participated in a Caring for Cameron assembly last Wednesday, as they showed their support for classmate Cameron Dahm who was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer in March. After challenges to raise money for the Dahm family were reached, Cameron’s teacher, Charlie DePuydt (above), who had a goal of $1,000, had his head shaved by members of the Northland Pines boys hockey team. Mark “Mugsy” DePuydt, who had a goal of $5,000, had his hair braided and cut off by Kara Petterson of Revive Salon & Barber Shop. Cameron, who continues to undergo chemotherapy treatments as doctors hope to reduce the size of the tumor on his lung,  also took his turn cutting the hair of the two donors.                        —Staff Photo By GARY RIDDERBUSCH
