Christmas basket effort needs help

Have you volunteered to assist with packing, delivering or baking for the annual Christmas baskets campaign? A tentative date has been set for Friday Dec. 11 with a rain date on Saturday Dec. 12 at the town hall. Beginning at 9 a.m., folks will be packing about 50 baskets and will need lots of helping hands. Baked goods such as breads, muffins, cookies, and brownies, will be needed as well as diabetic items and small gifts. Those who can help are urged to call Helen at 623-2909 after 6 p.m.

The Christmas basket project organizers would also appreciate help in letting them know of anyone who is likely to be alone for Christmas or any handicapped person who doesn't get out - they do not want to forget anyone who should be getting a basket. Call Helen 623-2909 or Evie 623-2580 with the information as soon as possible.

H.E.A.P. fuel assistance through the County Office for the Aging will be conducting an outreach event at the Thurman Town Hall Tuesday Nov. 24 from 10 to 11 a.m. Bring copy of social security numbers for all household members, proof of income, and heating bills, etc. For details, call 761-6347.
