GLEN ROCK - They had them right where they wanted them, by the chin hairs, at least $900 worth.

Members of the Glen Rock Police Benevolent Association helped to bring awareness to the fight against prostate cancer by not shaving during the month of November. At the end of the month, PBA members lined up at Stag House to have their beards shaved.

For the second year in a row, Rachel Isreal and Christine Modica, owners of Stag House, a hair salon and barber shop in Glen Rock, along with their staff, Noel Palmer and Gwen Roos, "were kind enough to donate their time and talents to a noble cause by shaving members of the Glen Rock Police Benevolent Association," according to Glen Rock Police Sergeant Chris McInerney.

"The Glen Rock PBA was successful in raising $900 for the cause and would like to express a heartfelt thanks to the ladies at Stag House for their donation, and their steady hands," McInerney said. "Rachel and Christine would like to remind everyone that in addition to shaving cops, they run a full service hair salon for women, as well."
