Monkey built this special children's room at the beauty salon to make "Fun Cuts" for kids. A "Cut-A-Thon" Benefit was held on Sunday, April 23, for Dan "Monkey" Schaller, the builder injured March 31 in a fall at a construction site in Marengo. A minimum 6 month hospital stay is expected with therapy treatments to follow. The "Clip Joint" Beauty Salon in Crystal Lake, owned by Jim ii Arlene Gibson, sponsored the event. Sandy Wickham planned and organized everything to help out the Shallers with all the expenses of hospital, new home/no income and just day to day living. Clip Joint manager, Julie Rink Schaller and Monkey were just married in September of 1988. The Cut-A-Thon was a huge successi Regular business hours for the Clip Joint were suspended and 12 sytlists gave their time (without pay) so that all proceeds could go to the Schallers. Many friends came from the surrounding area for haircuts or just to donate time or money. One friend had "Damn It Monkey Get Well" shaved right into his haircut! He plans to visit him in the hospital and show it to him before it can grow out. Owner Jim Gibson went around with a video camera recording everything to show Monkey. A substantial check from this event has been deposited in a special account set up at the Huntley State Bank for the Schallers. Anyone who couldn't make it to the Cut-A-Thon but would like to help can make a donation into that account. There are many more plans in the works to raise money for Monkey. If he wasn't sure before, "Monkey" Schaller had plenty of proof Sunday of how many caring friends he has!
