150 Main Salon, a new Thomaston salon, has a drop box to benefit Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County.

Clients may donate pet food or supplies for the shelter and will be entered into a drawing for a gift basket of salon products.

After working for years at various salons, owner Valerie Jackomino of Owls Head realized her dream of owning her own business. Jackomino, along with hairdressers Amy Bernardini of Rockland and Shelby Anderson of Warren opened 151 Main Salon in May.
