Enjoy your Christmas holiday!

May your holiday be a happy and healthy one. Remember all the folks in nursing homes by sending a card or stopping by for a visit.

Did you know that spending time is a greater gift than spending money? Especially for the older folks on your list.

We hope you will join us in spreading good cheer in an evening of Christmas caroling throughout the neighborhood on Saturday, Dec. 19 at 5 p.m. Everyone should meet at the Baptist church parking lot on South Johnsburg Road. Wouldn't it be nice if we had enough singers to form two teams and sing throughout the town?

By the way, children are doubtlessly hoping that Santa's elves were not among those who had their jobs cut in all the recent "downsizing" at the county and elsewhere.

Give me a call with your holiday news and also with events coming up in the new year - please call before 8 p.m.!

Remember folks that Thurman has a food pantry which is open to residents who may be in need of a helping hand. The pantry is located in the Thurman Town Hall and is open during business hours. Call 623-9649 for further information.

All who ride the senior bus,normally running on Fridays, note that because of Christmas the bus will run on Monday, Dec. 28. Call Laura by Saturday at 623-9281 and let her know if you'd like to go to Glens Falls on Monday.
