As we get our sites ready for a new look come Dec. 16, your friendly neighborhood Patch editors plan to go with new looks as well if you help us achieve our goal.
Canton Editor John Fitts has agreed to get yellow highlights in his brown hair if the site gets to 1,000 by year's end while Avon Editor Jessie Sawyer will have her dark blonde hair dyed red if her site reaches that summit.
To up the ante even more, she will get red hair and highlights if both Avon and Canton Patch earn 1,000 Facebook likes by the end of 2012.
We've decided our hair color is a small sacrifice to give your stories more visibility by growing your audience on Facebook.
As of Thursday afternoon, Avon Patch was at 710 Facebook likes and Canton had 812.
If Avon readers like Canton's page and Canton users like Avon's in return, it's possible. Share our pages with your friends and we'll get there. If each of you gets one person to like our page, that will also do the trick.
Thank you and happy holidays!
