If getting a hair cut, is on your 'to do list' this weekend two local barbershops are handing out more than just styles.

This Saturday at DJ's Classic Cuts and His & Hers Barber & Beauty Salon on West Main Street, they'll have a "Dads Matter" discussion.

The purpose of the event is to start a community conversation on the importance of fathers to families.

It's from 10 a.m.-2p.m. and there will be free food if you get a hair cut.

"They're trying to create that conversation in barbershops because that's kind of the hub, where a lot of ideas and opinions are made and that kind of thing," said Jason Williams with Healthy You, INC.

"Dads Matter" is part of a national campaign through President Obama's fatherhood initiative called "Fatherhood Buzz."
