North County Gives Back To Veterans
Union Street barber Gus Jammalo is offering free haircuts to any veteran this year.
Jammalo said one of his favorite parts of the job is talking to veterans when they come in for a trim.
"Some veterans don’t like to talk about it, but some do and I like to talk to people who were in the service," he said. "It is nice to share stories and talk about our time in the service. I get sailors, infantrymen and some marines who are always special people – they are all great."
"It will be fun, and I might even meet some new people."
Jammalo said he will also be donating any tips he receives to the American Legion.
Jammalo will offer the free haircuts Nov. 13 through Nov. 16. Veterans will need a valid military ID to get the free haircut.
"We feel it's important to make sure our veterans know that we are so appreciative of the commitment that they make to keep our country safe," Shaker said. "Anything that any business or citizen can do to thank them is important."
After the North Adams Veterans Day Ceremony at the American Legion at 11:00 am and the special dedication for Spc. Michael D. DeMarsico II at the North Adams Armory Saturday at 12:15, Veterans and citizens alike can make their way up to Clarksburg Elementary School to participate in a tabletop gaming fundraiser to support homeless veterans though soldier on.
This event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Veterans were also treated to music Thursday in Williamstown with a Veterans Tribute Concert put on by the Williamstown Elementary School Department of Music and Performing Arts.
The sixth-grade chorus performed patriotic songs and presented cards of thanks to present veterans.
