Thank You to the Ponderosa Vigilantes Barbershop Quartet for joining us for our first annual  2007 Holiday Open House. We hope to see you visit us again in the new year.
HISTORY OF BARBERING
"Shaving and barbers used to be synonymous. In fact, the very term barber comes from the latin,barba, which means beard. Nowadays, we forget that every man has a beard. Webster gives two definitions of beard:'(a) the hair that grows on the chin, cheeks and around the lips, especially of a man;hence a mark of virility; (b) this hair ...when worn long or trimmed in various shapes.' " 
"On the average, a mans's beard covers one third of a square foot, and consists of about 15,500 whiskers." pg. 89
