Free haircuts for veterans April 20 at Made Man

SALISBURY — Veterans, take note.

If you want a free haircut and shoeshine, plan to visit Made Man Barber and Shave at 108 W. Innes St. April 20.

The barber shop and Powles Funeral Home of Rockwell are teaming up to offer the free haircuts and shoeshines for veterans from noon to 5 p.m. that day, which is a Monday.

Russ Roakes, a funeral director for Powles, said it’s a way to say thanks to veterans for their service.

The barbers at Made Man are Brian Hunt and Tim Batten. The barber shop also is a “Retire Your Flag” donation site for worn U.S. flags. People can drop off at the shop their old American flags, which Powles includes in its cremation services for veterans.

Powles also has donated a red, white and blue bench to Made Man Barber Shop in honor of veterans. It is outside the barber shop. Rufty’s Garden Shop provided the bench that was donated by Powles.
