FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Abingdon Police Participate in “No Shave November” to Benefit Local High School Student Battling Cancer
The officers of the Abingdon Police Department are forgoing their razors for the month of November in favor of facial hair and making a $25 contribution to a local high school student who is battling cancer.
Officers participating in the No Shave November campaign have been approved to grow beards, which must be groomed and properly maintained, throughout the month. This is a temporary change to the department policy which prohibits beards for officers. Participating officers must make a minimum of $25 contribution to Connor Crushes Cancer, a go fund me page established to offset expenses for the family of Connor Bartz. Connor is a senior at Abingdon High School, and is fighting cancer for a second time. He is undergoing experimental treatment in Cincinnati that includes immunotherapy every three weeks. This means lots of gas, hotels, food, and medical expenses for Connor and his family. 100% of funds raised will be sent directly to the Bartz family from Go Fund Me.
In an effort to provide greater assistance to the Bartz family, the Chief is encouraging officers to individually raise more money for this cause to be donated at the end of November, 2018. Throughout the month, officers, and their facial hair will be highlighted on our social media accounts to keep our followers apprised of their progress. In addition, our followers will be afforded an opportunity to choose the best facial hair at the conclusion of the month. The officer selected will be allowed to keep his beard until January 1, 2019.
The Abingdon Police Department challenges our community to join us in participating in No Shave November by making a donation to the Bartz family. The go fund me page can be accessed at: www.gofundme.com/connor-crushe... 
. We will also accept donations for the Connor Crushes Cancer fund at the Abingdon Police Department located at 425 West Main Street.

    Book by Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin ~~ Music by Matthew Sklar Lyrics by Chad Beguelin ~~ Based upon the New Line Cinema film written by David Berenbaum ~~ A hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who accidentally crawls into Santa’s bag and is taken back to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities force him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help remember the true meaning of Christmas. After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear.~~ Director's Notes The Elf-man Chronicles of Buddy, at Christmas. ~~ Christ·mas \"(‘krisməs)~~ noun ~~ 1.the annual Christian festival celebrating Christ's birth, held‪ on December 25in the Western Church.~~ exclamation ~~ 2. expressing dismay, despair, or surprise.~~ For our hero, BUDDY, the Elf, Christmas 2018 is going be unlike any other he’s had before. This one will be full of surprises . And as surprises often go, some will be great... and others, a little less great. In a matter of minutes, he will discover that his happy and syrup-filled life with Santa Claus has been based on a FIB! Buddy is not an ELF at all, but rather, j ust a human! And his real father works in publishing! whatever that is! So, Buddy embarks on a journey of self discovery, as only Buddy can.We can all identify with his search, full of longing for areal family. To feel the warm embrace of his father, to drink hot cocoa with his stepmom, and to snuggle with his newfound brother. From the snowy drifts of the North Pole to the bustling streets of New York City,Buddy swerves in and out of danger, bringing everyone he meets a proverbial gumdrop full of cheer.~~ And what about us, as we watch this musical from our comfortable seats? Are we capable of Buddy’s good cheer in the face of despair? Can we turn shock and dismay into joy and laughter with our own good nature and a few bars of Jingle Bells?~~ It’s easy to get caught up in the frenzied month of December, all the parties and shopping, the wrapping paper and ribbons. Let’s pause to reflect on the sparklejollyjingletwinkle y-ness of this wonderful life. Let’s learn from Buddy’s discovery. Let’s be inspired by this overgrown Elf-Man. Let’s cruise down Main Street, singing along with our own father, mother, kids, and grandkids. Let’s put our own innate and surprising abundance of sparklejollyjinkgletwinkl ey into this Christmas. And make everyone around us feel as good as a cup full of maple syrup and a ginger snap. What a wonderful Christmas surprise that will be!~~ Susanne Boulle – Director, Elf: The Musical ~~ Cast & Credits CAST: Santa Claus: Rick McVey ~~ Mrs. Claus: Mary Lucy Bivins ~~ Buddy: Zacchaeus Kimbrell ~~ Charlie, an elf: Rusty Allen ~~ Shawanda, an elf: Brandy Drzymkowski ~~ Santa’s Elves: Parker Byun, Sean Maximo Campos, Caroline Lambert, Justin Tyler Lewis, Paris Bradstreet, Hope Quinn, Joshua J.
