Residents and people visiting Huntingdon may notice some of our police officers looking somewhat peculiar. Nine members of the department are participating in our first-ever “No-Shave November.”
To participate each officer was required to either pay $100 from their own funds or by sponsorship.
The total amount of money donated was $1,100 which is being given to the local Carl Perkins Center in Huntingdon to provide funds earmarked for their food pantry. The goal was to raise enough money to help the food bank during the upcoming holiday season and to raise awareness with the community that the food bank exists and is a cause worthy of support.
At the end of the month the employees of the Cornerstone Eatery in Huntingdon will judge the officers and select the winner with the best beard. The winner will receive a free large pizza. A free combo meal is being provided to each contestant by Josh Grant at Sonic Drive-in and a free shave is being donated by Darnall’s Barber Shop.
In addition the department thanks sponsors: Tates Chapel, Sonic of Huntingdon, Bennett Hardware of McKenzie, Centennial Bank, Everett and Diana Wiler and Carroll Bank & Trust.
