Dear Ms. Terrell and the Shear Power team,

 The Downtown Ashland Association congratulates Shear Power on the recent renovation of 202A England Street. What was once an empty store front is now a welcoming salon. We recognize your contribution to revitalization of our community.

 Shear Power has a long and lasting relationship with Ashland. Lou Wilder founded Shear Power and developed it into a vibrant, much-loved salon. Life-long friend Brooke Terrell took ownership and continued the warm feeling of Shear Power as a gathering place--where you happen to get a really good hair cut too.

The Shear Power team, Christy, Cindy, Sandra, Mark and Brooke, welcome the clientele with laughs, sympathy when needed, a good story here and there, and always great professional service. The salon serves as a hub of our community.

Shear Power took on a significant renovation of 202A England Street. The dated, empty store front received new flooring, wall coverings, window framing, paint, and décor. Brooke’s $17,000 investment created an even larger effect in the commercial space.

Downtown Ashland Association recognizes Shear Power’s contribution to the design and economic vitality of Downtown Ashland. Further, we recognize Shear Power as a important part of our community. We are grateful for your business investment and for your work every day.

 Sincerely yours,

 Lorie Foley, President
