Easter in Thurman

The familiar holiday bunny came hopping down the well-worn path about 4 a.m.on Easter. I saw him in the moonlight trying to put on his ear muffs, but he was having so much trouble trying to get them to cover his ears that I felt sorry for him and rushed around and found a large knit hat that I placed by the kids Easter baskets - then hurried back to bed. I got up again after I heard him leave and sure'nuff he took the warm hat. When daylight came there was snow flurrying, so is it any wonder that he was cold?

The Baker family of Mud Street had an Easter egg hunt and this fun event for the little ones was followed by a delicious family dinner. Thirty-two family members came from Ballston Spa, Brant Lake, Corinth as well as the local area. Eileen Baker hosted the event and her mom, Leile Wood enjoyed the family gathering.

Gathering to celebrate Easter at the Strobeck-Russell home on Garnet Lake Rd.were Bonnie and Bernie Monroe and four children, and Lennie and John Parker, all of Warrensburg. Other visitors included Jenny and Will Hill and two children and John Hill, all of Glens Falls.

Myrtle and Elmer Buyce of Buyce Rd visited her sister Elsie Allen at the Tri-County Nursing Home in North Creek after which they enjoyed Easter dinner with Joseph and Helen Allen in Johnsburg.

SueAnn and Donnie Stone and their three children gave a special Easter surprise to his grandmom, Charlotte Wood, when they showed up to rake and clean up her large lawn, located on state Rte. 28 in Warrensburg. They later enjoyed a big dinner which was prepared by their mom, Cindy Lamb.
