Enforced Facial Hair for Charity: Brothers of the Brush
"The mayor and Coshocton County Commissioners have decreed all adult men in Coshocton County need to grow facial hair in support of the Coshocton bicentennial event. Sideburns, beards, mustaches, goatees, any sort of hair is fair game.
Those who don't want to participate can buy a permit to be clean shaven for $5. They'll be given a token to carry that indicates they've paid. If they can't produce it, they'll have to pay again. Mercer said the proceeds from the fines will go to area food pantries.
Enforcement will begin during First Friday events on May 6. A "police" force known as Keystone Cops will patrol downtown looking for men who are lacking facial hair."
