After getting up early for work for nearly 40 years - or trudging out in the middle of wintry nights to clear snow-covered roadways - Terry Beadnell is going to see some relief soon.
Beadnell, of Bowen Hill Rd. will put in his last day of work for the Thurman Town Highway Dept. Friday Feb. 27.
All are welcome to stop by the Town Highway Dept. garage and wish him well in his retirement.
Beadnell started working at the age of 16 and has been a faithful employee ever since. It was not unusual to see him driving the town trucks or plowing snow, but he also was the main operator for many years of the town's heavy equipment, including bucket loaders, backhoes and graders.
The community wishes him and his wife Nancy Beadnell - Town Clerk for 20 years - many happy retirement years. Their three children - Theresa, Luke and Jerod -are grown now. The couple also has two grandchildren to occupy their retirement hours.
