Marie Turmel Kroeger opened a hair salon in a refurbished milk house in Craftsbury last month with confidence and enthusiasm.

“It’s called faith in oneself,” she said, just a couple of weeks into officially opening The Milk House Hair Studio on King Farm Road.

Ms. Kroeger’s business offers a range of services, including hair cutting, coloring, highlighting, and styling, and other treatments like relaxed permanent waves and facial waxing. She also does makeup for, and consults on, events like weddings or professional makeovers.

Everything happens in a 300-square-foot space, restored and relocated from across the street by her husband, Ben. The space is decorated with artwork mostly painted by Ms. Kroeger herself.

“It’s really, really quaint, and very personalized,” she said.

The Friends of the Jones Memorial Library in Orleans held its fourth annual benefit golf tournament at the Barton Golf Club on August 24.

The first place winners of the four-person scramble were River Garden Cafe’s team of Nick Ouellette, Aric Steen, Bill Binney, and Eben Alexander, with a score of 60.

The second place team was Jamie Barron, Annie Barron, Alexis Harper, and Bruce Reed with a score of 61.  The third place team was Mark Tinker, Judy Tinker, Judy Martel, and Lyle Noyes with a score of 62.

Brent Kinsley won the putting contest in a putt out with Paulette Rogers.  Bob Hoyt won longest drive for men.  Annie Barron won longest drive for women.  Bruce Reed won closest to the pin at 12 inches.  Of special interest, Eben Alexander nailed a hole-in-one on number 8.  There are six par 3s at the Barton Golf Club and four of the six had special prizes offered by Hayes Ford including a car.  Unfortunately, number 8 was not one of the prize holes.

All proceeds from the event help to support library services and programs.  — submitted by Martha Kinsley.
