Mask Fairies to hand out free face masks

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Mask Fairies will hand out free cloth face masks Tuesday.

Five women dressed as fairies and accompanied by “upbeat music” will provide close to 100 masks to those who want them between 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. for Cinco de Mayo.

They will be at the Safeway grocery store on Lincoln Street, said Linda Galle-Parent.

“We are hoping to bring a little laughter and levity to our community,” Galle-Parent said, describing the event as a “passionate endeavor to bring joy.”

Other Mask Fairies are Jeanette Painter, Lauren Jeffries-Johnson, Mary Lofstrom and Barbara Slavick.
