Thornes Hosts Haircut-a-Thon

NORTHAMPTON — One of New Jersey native Diane Bevan’s fondest childhood memories was time spent with her family at the Jersey shore. So, watching the televised images of the devastation brought to residents there and elsewhere by superstorm Sandy in late October was “heartbreaking,” Bevan said. A longtime stylist who works at Panacea Hair Salon in Northampton, Bevan said recognizing how the lives of Sandy’s victims had been changed forever inspired her to find someway to help them.
