Last year we started the tradition of a beard-growing contest around the holidays. We have people grow their beards beginning on October 14th, and grow their facial hair for about 1 month. The winner will be judged and announced at our annual Handmade Holiday Market.
If you'd like to participate, please shave clean on October 14th. It's a five dollar entry fee (sign up in church foyer). Winner must be present at the Handmade Holiday Market to be judged by our "beard experts."
