All local families with children of any age can take advantage of a free family fun night at the Glens Falls YMCA Fri. Feb. 6 from 7 to 9 p.m. The YMCA officials ask that folks call head at 793-3878 and tell them the ages of their children, so the staff can arrange to have fun activities planned for each age group. Also, there are activities for adults to enjoy.
There are the old standbys such as games, crafts and swimming as well as added new adventures. Turn off the television for an evening and take a trip to "The Y!"

Share your memories of bygone days
What did you do in the "Good Ol' Days?" Did you go to the little country store by horse and buggy or did you walk? Did you carry a packbasket? Were you snowed in and found you had to wear snowshoes to get out?
All our memories are now history and the John Thurman Historical Society is looking for tidbits or stories before they become forgotten. Were you a "bad" kid at the one-room schoolhouse? Did you have to carry pails of water from a well to provide water for your bath?
