The United Way of the Tri-Valley Area recently held its second annual Cut-A-Thon. Stylists from Hair Razor, Medulla, Silver Shears and Snippers donated their time and gave all $1,200 of the proceeds to the United Way.

A Button Brunch was also held last weekend at Franklin Memorial Hospital to celebrate the United Way’s Buttons for Babes program reaching a milestone of raising $30,000 in two years. More than 60 people participated. Money raised as part of Buttons for Babes helps to support the unmet needs of children in Greater Franklin County. Applications are available at
