Opportunities to serve your town

Those who seek to hold public office in the upcoming Nov. elections should be aware of six open positions in Thurman town government. The openings are one assessor position, two town board seats, town highway superintendent, town clerk, and town supervisor. Those seeking office can pick up their petitions and start getting signatures now. Filing of completed petitions is between July 13 and 16. This leaves candidates about two weeks to get petitions signed. Independent petitions can be started on July 7.

Petitions can be obtained on the Warren County Board of elections, or off their Website. For details, call 761-6459.

Donations of snack food would be very much appreciated for the kids who will attend the summer recreation program beginning Monday July 6. Goodies can be left at the town hall or after 9 a.m. bring them on up to the new youth building. For details, call Maria at 623-9961. Donations can also be left at the Ligon Home on High St.

Many 14-year-old children in the local recreation programs - or working for the county - will be stepping out in the business world and starting their first job. We hope they will enjoy holding a job and learning how to save a few dollars out of their paychecks. Good Luck, kids. Just remember to listen to your boss.
