Annual townwide sale approaching

Town residents are reminded that the townwide Garage and Yard Sale event is set for May 14 through 16, and it's time to gather and organize sale items.

Those who are hosting sales can register between 2 and 6 p.m. Thursday April 29 through Saturday May 1 at the Thurman Town Hall to be placed on a map.

Volunteers will be on hand to take information, which will be used to publicize your sale on the town website and on the maps which are handed out to visitors to town.

Folks hosting sales are asked to bring a list of their representative sale items which will be described in the map packet and in advertisements. Those who wish may set up for just one or two days rather than all three.

All who register pay $3 for these ads and publicity.

All vendors are reminded to make sure sale items are marked with a price and be prepared to put up some bright pink signs leading shoppers to your yard sale.

Protect your loved ones

A rabies clinic offered through Warren County Public Health Services is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday April 24 at the Lake George Firehouse. Those seeking details may call 761-6580 for details. Keep your pets and family members safe, as rabies has been reported in the area.

Please note there is a leash law in the town of Thurman, and pets must not be running at large. Those who find animals who have been dropped off on their door stoop or have wandered onto their property, are welcome to call the town dog warden at 623-9810 and he will pick them up.

Over the fence

Residents have reported that mosquitoes are back in swarms, and it's early for those pesky creatures. Does this mean we won't get the black fly infestation in May? With our crazy April weather - so far we've had an 80-degree high followed by 35 degree weather including snowfall - even the birds are confused. Let's hope their not too perplexed to consume as many mosquitoes as they should be.
