Historical society calendar for sale

THURMAN Frank Lillibridge turned 21 on Oct. 21, 1933. In an old blank book from the Warrensburg Woolen Company, he began setting down a daily record of life on and around Maple Grove Farm in Thurman, the home where he had been born the only child of James and Mabel (Baker) Lillibridge, and where he had lived all his life without electricity, indoor plumbing or motorized vehicles. The John Thurman Historical Society has centered its 2008 calendar around entries gleaned from this journal, which spans several years, telling of chores around the family homestead, visits with neighbors, trips to the little general store and Thurman Post Office. These entries are displayed with photographs from the archives of the Lillibridge family and other residents of the area, creating a charming chronicle of yesteryear to serve as a recording place for events of the new year. These calendars are available for $8 at the Thurman town hall, Athol General Store, and, in Warrensburg, Posies, Nemecs, Warrensburg Car Care, and the Adirondack Gift Store. Those unable to find one may phone Joan Harris at 623-2007.
