Croissant to retire from town post
Robin Croissant has filled an important seat on the Thurman Cemetery Committee for many years and has done an excellent job. Now, Robin is stepping down as of July 1 to take some time for her family and to also give another person the opportunity to fill the post, she said this week. Those interested in taking her position should send a letter to Red Pitkin, Box 29, Athol, or drop it off at the town clerk's office in the Thurman Town Hall.
Get well wishes from the community are out to Jackie Dingman, Lila Harrington, Doris Baker, Richard Wormwood, Liz Kennedy, Irene Lamphier, and Earl E. Dibble.
Word has been received of the passing of Janet (Baker) Clothier, who died on May 15, 2009 at the Saratoga Hospital. She was originally from Thurman and was the first local girl to join the army - the U.S. Women's Army Corps - and was the daughter of the late Pearl and Irving Baker. Sympathy from the community goes out to the family.
Jason Sparks and his son, Hayden of Gainsville, Fla. were recently in Thurman visiting his parents, Becky and Bob Hitchcock on Drexel Rd. During Sparks' weeks vacation, he got to visit with many other relatives in our area.
