The Sugar Loaf Mountain Seniors Club enjoyed their Christmas party at the Hofbrau Haus Restaurant at the Exit 19 Ramada Inn Dec. 12. Twenty-one members not only enjoyed a Christmas feast but also had a good time with a Christmas gift exchange. Anyone wishing to join this fun loving club - age 55 and older - is particularly welcome to attend a covered dish dinner to be held Saturday, Jan. 15, at 12 p.m. in the Thurman Town Hall. Bring a covered dish to pass, and any ideas or suggestions for upcoming trips in the New Year! We hope to meet lots of new friends and neighbors at our next and first meeting of the new year.
The Thurman Volunteer Fire Co. meets Monday, Jan. 3, at the Athol Fire House at 7 p.m. Meetings are open to the public and any new volunteers are always needed.
A reminder that the Warrensburg School will be having a marathon dance from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. beginning Jan. 15 at the high school to raise money for charitable organizations. There will also be a raffle and other activities. Donations can be made and checks can be sent to WCS and mailed to the attention of Darlene Gordon.
Work halted on Woolen Mill Bridge
The construction work on the Milton Street Bridge in Warrensburg has concluded for the season and the contractor, Tioga Construction, has closed down operations temporarily at their field office, located on the Jean Hadden property, the site of the former Warrensburgh Woolen Mill and later, the Warrensburgh Pants Factory.
For decades in an earlier era, both these mills once supplied employment to so many folks in this area.
Since last February, Tioga Construction has been working to build a new two-lane span to replace the single-lane Woolen Mill Bridge over the Schroon River. The Woolen Mill Bridge, originally a trolley bridge, was bought second hand and placed over the Schroon River in 1897.
