Mommie & Me group now in limbo

Those who were holding the locally based preschool playgroup Mommie & Me announced Friday that they are suspending meetings at this time due to the low level of participation. The group, which has been running for at least a decade, has been a way for mothers and other caregivers to network and socialize while providing fun activities and valuable social experiences for children. For information, call Jennifer at 623-5024.

Easter celebration

popular in Thurman

The town hall was packed with excited children and their parents Saturday April 3 at the youth commission's annual Easter egg hunt. Over 600 eggs were hidden, and the children wore not only Easter outfits, but wide smiles as they grabbed a basket and ran around searching for these eggs. Children came from near and far, some from Queensbury, North Creek, Pottersville, Stony Creek, and Johnsburg, just to name a few area towns.

The Easter Bonnet contest winners were Calista Steves, Audrey Steves and Elizabeth Schumek, who who won some very nice prizes. Their hats or bonnets were all original and handmade.

Maria Ligon, who planned this special day for children, expresses special thanks to those who stepped up to help: Jed and Lisa Quinn, Don and Nancy Decker, Bruce Tvrdik, Marilyn Hoy Youngblood, Nancy Beadnell, Jim Ligon, and to various parents who assisted.
