Holiday activities abound in Thurman

Nearly a dozen townsfolk came out in the cold Dec. 19 and sang old fashioned Christmas carols to spread good cheer among their Thurman neighbors.

What a delight to see the little ones singing right along with the adults! The group traveled by car and spread delightful Christmas wishes from one Thurman neighborhood to another, through songs, smiles, and handshakes. This old-fashioned Christmas tradition has been carried out for many years by the Thurman Baptist Church and its members. A thank you is out to the Warren County 4-H Adirondack Ventures for supplying Christmas cookies to the Thurman Meals on Wheels program for their Dec. 21 delivery.

The annual children's Christmas party in Thurman held on Dec. 12 at the town hall was a huge success with 74 children stopping by. Many parents also stayed and helped out, which was appreciated.

Prizes were won by Dakota Fox, who went home with the beautiful gingerbread house; Hayley Morse won the toddler basket of goodies, Paige Morse won the special girl basket, Zachary Carpenter won the boys goody basket and Brent Ackley won the full candy jar.

The committee would like to thank everyone who baked, and helped out in any way, with special thanks to local firemen, Cub and Chip for bringing Santa; thanks to Marilyn for the tree and pine cones, and thanks to Jamiee for leading the songs around the Christmas tree.

A big thank you is out to all who helped fill not just one, but two big boxes for the Toys for Tots program. This was a project under taken by the S.A.F.E. ( Southern Adirondack Four-Wheeler Enthusiast) Club to help the U.S. Marines. Thanks everyone.

Enjoying a big Christmas dinner Dec. 13 were 25 members of the Sugar Loaf Mountain Seniors Club. Their event was held at the Ramada Inn restaurant in Glens Falls. Everyone was delighted and enjoyed the day. The seniors will be meeting on the third Saturday of the months of January, February, and March for the winter. The group is now looking for new members age 50 and up who would like to join this fun loving club. Call Norma for details at 623-9425.
