Everything, no matter how insignificant it seems, is important to the history of our region.
Let us know about the almost-forgotten days by making notes or call 623-2580 or 623-2007 and someone will stop by for your story.
Why not do more than offer a story - join the local historical society and enjoy the tales of the old days as well as socializing with neighbors.
The John Thurman Historical Society would welcome anyone to join the group, and they can do so by attending the society's next meeting at 7 p.m. Tues. Feb. 3 in the Thurman Town Hall. New members of any age can help the group in their mission of keeping alive the memories and history of Thurman and Athol. For information, call 623-2007.
