PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” If you want to think warm thoughts that will propel us into summer-like weather, than why not think of the Punxsutawney Relay For Life event, which will be held on Saturday, July 13, in Barclay Square.
Plans and preparations for this yearâ€™s event are already well underway.
"We need people to recruit new teams for the Relay," said Jennifer Heinze, co-chair with Robyn Shaffer for the Punxsy Relay again this year.

Jeanie Smith, age 9, of Punxsutawney donated 12 inches of her hair to "Wigs for Kids" on March 1, marking the fourth time she has done so.
She previously donated her hair for the same cause on April 16, 2011;
March 6, 2009; and May 15, 2007.
Jeanie is currently in fourth grade at Punxsutawney Area Middle School.
Jeanie believes that, even though she is only a child, she can help other children who need hair by donating her own.
All four times, Alicia Burkett, current owner of Alicia's Hair Cottage, cut Jeanie Smith's hair.
