AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The Red Sox run to the World Series has brought about a lot of beards in New England. The Maine Facial Hair Club has already been on the bandwagon for a couple of years.
Club president Steve Trask helped establish the club in 2011 as a social vehicle for strangers to get to know one another with the common them of facial hair. At least 15-20 people convene at their monthly meetings and their Facebook page is almost at 1,100 likes.
They've since expanded the club from a strictly social group to a competitive and charitable entity as well. They regularly compete in beard competitions throughout Maine and also help organize and participate in charity events.
