Franklin County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Pelton, foreground, St. Clair Mayor Ron Blum, left, and Edgar Murray Elementary School Principal Kent Sherrow, back, don either fake mustaches or eyebrows on Thursday night as they formally attempt to “impress” area women while encouraging them to bid on handbags as part of the local Power of the Purse auction in the Christian Life Center at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. The annual event is sponsored by the Franklin County Area United Way and serves as a fund-raiser for the local organization. An online gallery from the event is available on The Missourian's website.
