Parishioners of the Thurman Baptist Church and friends in the community were out in full -force the evening of Dec. 14 singing Christmas Carols to shut-ins and senior residents of the area. This old-fashioned tradition is still bringing smiles and good cheer to our neighborhood.
Singers ranged from age four to 83, and their voices blended in remarkable harmony. Thank you, singers, for coming out in the cold to bring happiness to others!
Neighbors who received Christmas Baskets from the Thurman Committee would like to thank all who in any way helped to fill these beautiful baskets. One caller said it was like getting a Christmas hug from so many caring people.
