Shearly frightful — but fun — fundraiser

Employees at Carla’s Shear Inspiration Salon in Oak Harbor came to work on Halloween dressed as their favorite Walt Disney character in order to raise money for the New York Relief Fund. Customers and clients donated dollars to vote for best costume. The salon was decorated too. Characters included Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Captain Hook, Tinkerbelle, CruellaDeVille and Pocahontas. Val Bryant, who donned the garb of the evil queen Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty, won the competition — tongue out. (hands down)  The day-long event raised $387. - Ken George
