Mayor Hollenbach has issued a Mayoral Proclamation in support of the Perkasie Borough Police Department and their participation in No-Shave November, 2019. No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation, raise cancer awareness and raise funds for related non-profit organizations. The Police Department is also collecting donations of food and men’s grooming products for Pennridge FISH. Donations can be dropped off at the Police Department or at Perkasie or Sellersville Borough Halls.
No-Shave November Proclamation
WHEREAS No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise awareness for men’s health issues.
WHEREAS, officers with the Perkasie Borough Police Department have expressed an interest in raising money for the American Cancer Society to grow awareness by embracing their hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle;
WHEREAS, Pennridge FISH is a non-profit, local organization that benefits many in the community and is seeking donations of men’s grooming products and gently used clothing;
NOW THEREFORE, as Mayor of Perkasie, I hereby declare that during the month of November, those in any Borough Department that wish to participate, show up clean-shaven and baby-faced on November 1st and look like western-movie villains or grizzly bears by Thanksgiving.
FURTHER, while we are sure our Perkasie Borough Police Officers will be hearty, ruggedly good-looking people with their new look, once the month is over, they will be expected to once again conform to the current policy of having a clean shaven face.
NOW THEREFORE, do I, John Hollenbach, Mayor of the Borough of Perkasie, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, hereby proclaim, November 1st through November 30th, 2019 as No Shave November in the Borough of Perkasie and further proclaim that participating Police Officers and employees donate a minimum $1.00 per day or men’s grooming item towards a men’s health awareness cause and encourage others to participate.
John Hollenbach, Mayor
