The Maine Facial Hair Club is open to all men and women enthused by facial hair. We have been involved with red cross blood drives since our inception by donating regularly, we are in our 2nd year raising money via our bowling team for bikers against bullying Bowl-a-thon. we have organized the beard contest for Bowdoinhams ice and smelt festival 2013, and are looking forward to being in Augusta’s July 4th parade in 2013. Also as most of us have children along with beards and tattoos etc. , we try to help rid the typical negative stereotypes associated with beards and tattoos , to help our children have a healthier and realistic view of the people they love and admire daily regardless of public opinions.
