Volunteers sought, driver training set
The Thurman Emergency Squad is now seeking new members - not only emergency medical personnel, but vehicle drivers too.
The squad will be sponsoring an emergency vehicle operations course Jan. 4 and Jan. 11 at the squad building on High St. There is no cost for this training, and it is open to nearly anyone seeking to become a driver for the squad. Prospective drivers must be at least 18 and possess a standard driver's license. For information, call Jill at 682-2602.

Over the fence
The Thurman school bus run through the Kenyontown area was delayed Dec. 4. The alert driver encountered icy conditions on Mountain Road and pulled the bus over and waited for sand trucks to be dispatched. The children arrived at school about one hour late, but safe and sound.
Merry Christmas everyone! We hope your holiday will be extra special this year and to all who are ill at this time, we pray that you will feel so much better.
