Lysh Hair Salon celebrated with their annual Princess Party last Saturday. There were approximately 200 kids in attendance and they were able to raise $2,216.45 for Fernie’s Friends for Friends.

“I would say that this was our busiest year with around 200 princesses coming through the doors,” said owner Sarah LeNeveu. “We would just really like to emphasize how amazing this town is – the amount of volunteers (12) who helped was incredible. We even had a few moms jump in for over an hour and help face paint when the lineup was getting backed up.

“To be part of a business community such as ours is truly amazing, words cannot express the thanks we have for everyone who helped put this day together.”
