3 To Do: Beach clean-up, art sale and free haircuts

Marco Eagle

1. Rick’s Island Salon offers back to school free haircuts

So many “deals” come with strings attached, as you know if you have ever accepted the invitation to a dinner/investment seminar, or suffered through a time share pitch.

File: Amin Said, although not ready for school, is ready for a haircut. Rick's Island Salon is offering free haircuts.

But this deal delivers exactly what it promises, with no hidden catch. All Collier County students, teachers and school staff are eligible for a haircut at Rick’s Island Salon and Day Spa, a $25 value, absolutely free of charge.

This is Rick’s ninth year offering the free haircuts.

Call the salon, 239-642-6696 and make an appointment.

2. Sunday: ‘Love your beach’ clean-up

Once a month, members of the Marco Island Beach Advisory Committee team up with volunteers from the community to clean up the beach from one end to the other.

One such clean-up is this weekend. Starting at 9 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 13, at South Beach, Marco Island.

Come one, come all! Bring your guests, neighbors and friends.

Join Marco Island’s Beach Advisory Committee and CJ’s on the Bay for a beach clean-up.

3. Tuesday: ‘Dog Dayz of Summer’ sale
