A shave and a haircut, two-bits!  O yeh!  But this is even better!  It’s free! and it’s a quality do!  Danny Lerma was a hairstylist in San Antonio, Texas.  And, it is obvious from seeing his work, a very good one. But he retired and moved to Forestville.

He had time on his hands and wanted more involvement with his new community, more interaction with the people.  He volunteered with the Council on Aging at the Senior Center in Sebastopol as a companion to the elderly who were there to participate in the activities, develop friendships, and just hang-out.

After awhile he started offering free haircuts to his new friends there, which he continues to do.  And just recently he has come to the Russian River Senior Center in Guerneville to cut and style hair also for free here.

It’s not just a great deal money-wise.  Getting the chance to know Danny is treat in itself. 

He is cutting hair on Tuesday, twice a month, from 10am to Noon.  This month: Tuesday, June 6 and 20th.  Drop in the Russian River Senior Center or call Vicki to reserve your place: 869-0618.
