Thurman business map under development
The Thurman Station Farmers' Market Committee is in the process of creating a map for visitors to show them the town's businesses, their locations and hours of operation. All businesses, both large and the small, are welcome.
The map will have "dots" on the front for businesses open daily, and on the back there will be listings of the businesses who operate only a few hours.
Those drafting the map hope all Thurman businesses will join by calling 623-9305 or send an e-mail to: email@example.com.
The Heritage Day Celebration set for July 7 was cancelled due to the intense heat, which was in the high 90s, but it will be rescheduled to be held in mid-August at the Thurman Station Farmers' Market.
