The Pet Store
HARRISBURG, Pa. — State Rep. Rob Kauffman, R-Cumberland/Franklin, recently joined an official from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection in congratulating The Pet Store in Chambersburg, Pa., upon the award of a $6,743 state grant toward upgrading lighting throughout the store.
The Pet Store used the Advantage Grant to help offset the cost of changing over existing overhead fluorescent lighting to energy-efficient LED lighting.
The grant program provides 50 percent matching grants, up to a maximum of $9,500, to enable a Pennsylvania small business to adopt or acquire energy-efficient or pollution-prevention equipment or processes.
Jules, Enchanting Gifts and Collectables
BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Jules, Enchanting Gifts and Collectables is holding a party Oct. 13 to celebrate 15 years in business.
In May 1997, Jules Happy Rone started working in a small art gallery in Berkeley Springs. By August of that year, she was managing the gallery, and by October, the owner sold it to Rone.
Now, fairies hide among handcrafted boxes from England, and chimes, books, cards, girly tools, coasters and handmade jewelry from Peru compete for attention in the small store.
The anniversary party is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the shop, 13 Fairfax St. in Berkeley Springs.
It will feature food, drinks, sales, specials, a puzzle contest and door prizes.

Studio B Salon & Spa
Cristy Tritle, Arbonne area manager and owner of Studio B Salon & Spa at 580 Northern Ave., Suite D, in Hagerstown, sponsored a back-to-school event for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County on Aug. 12. The “littles” were treated to free haircuts, manicures and mini facials, while the “bigs” were treated to mini facials. They were served lunch, and each child left with a bag full of school supplies and personal items from the Big Brothers Big Sisters staff.
Studio B donated raffle baskets of Arbonne products and salon services valued at more than $500, through which the salon was able to make donations of $230 each to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County and the Arbonne Angel Foundation.
A portion of sales from that day also were donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
