Luncheon to Honor Buyces

The Thurman community has planned a public potluck luncheon for Saturday March 6 at the Thurman Baptist Church to honor Elmer and Myrtle Buyce. The event, set for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., is intended to demonstrate the community's appreciation for all that this couple has done for both the church and the community over many years.

Friends and family of the couple are invited to stop by any time during the affair and share food and fellowship with the Buyces. Elmer grew up and worked in Thurman all his life, and courted Myrtle Putnam, whose parents had moved to Thurman. The two married in October 1968 and made their home in Elmer's family home on Buyce Rd., living until 1999 without electricity. The Buyces have been very active in Thurman Baptist Church and other community organizations, and have hosted many beneficial community activities on their property. All in the community are invited to bring a food dish and join the March 6 event, or just stop in and greet the Buyces. For details, call Joan Harris at 623-2007.
