A worthy donation

After watching her cousin die from cancer, Elle Leonard felt inspired to do something. She came up with growing her hair out and then donating it to Locks for Love. Tuesday was cut day, as the 10-year-old Ellsworth native had 12 inches of hair cut at Calypso Salon. Mom Lisa Plummer estimated it was eight months since Elle's last hair cut. Elle is pictured with Calypso owner Leah Stensrud.
