HUNTINGDON — Huntingdon Police Department’s “No -Shave November- Battle of the Beards” contest raised $1,100 for the Carl Perkins food pantry. The contest was between participating officers, who did not shave during the month of November.
On Tuesday, December 3, the participating officers met at the Cornerstone Eatery in Huntingdon to determine who had the best beard. After a good meal, the employees of Cornerstone looked the group over and announced Sgt. Chris Cole was the winner. Cornerstone owner, Chase Inman, gave Sgt. Cole a gift card and each participating member a free meal.
“We are proud of our accomplishment in raising $1100 for the Carl Perkins food pantry and we believe that our efforts with the support of the local media has helped raise awareness of the food pantry and the need to support it. Other groups and individuals are now currently in the process of their own efforts to collect food for the pantry. We want to again thank our other sponsors, Huntingdon Sonic, Tates Chapel Church, Darnals Barber Shop and Diane & Everett Wiler. We look forward to making this a yearly event, said Walter Smothers, director of Huntingdon Public Safety Department.
