Easter brings local families together

Easter came early this year on April 4, and the holiday will bring a gathering of family members in many homes in the area. Soon our fair-weather friends will be returning from the south, which was not warm this year. We welcome them all back, as we wish everyone Happy Easter.

Churches welcome all on this special Easter morning, Sunday April 4.

The Kenyontown Methodist Church, Valley Rd., will start with a midmorning pancake breakfast at 10 a.m. followed by the Sunday Easter service at 11 a.m.

The Thurman Baptist Church, South Johnsburg Rd., will have a "Son Rise" service at 11 a.m..

The Christ Community Church, on Athol Rd., also has a Son Rise special service at 7 a.m. which will be followed by a pancake and sausage breakfast. Easter services at 11 a.m.

Easter is not just a time for candy and bunnies bringing baskets, nor just for getting pretty new clothes.

Bring your family to a church of your choice to fully immerse your family in the spiritual aspects of the day.

Missing photo mystery resolved

The case of the missing picture of Elmer Buyce, taken off the wall of the Thurman Town Hall, has been solved. As soon as the March 21 Adirondack Journal was distributed, the person involved -- honest and thoughtful -- called to say the picture of Elmer was borrowed to hang on the wall at the local Baptist Church for the recent party which honored Elmer and Myrtle. By the time this gets to print it will once again be returned to the Town Hall.

As you tackle the challenging chore of spring cleaning and sorting things, remember to keep a box handy to put the items in that you wish to put in your garage sale in conjunction with the townwide sale, set for May 14, 15 and 16.
