Athol-Thurman 11-20-2010

For those generous, thoughtful folks who are volunteering for the annual holiday charity project, the session to fill those Christmas Baskets is to be held at 9 a.m. Friday, Dec. 10, in the Thurman Town Hall. The snow day is Saturday, Dec. 11, at the Thurman Emergency Medical Services squad building on High Street also at 9 a.m.

Help in this outreach to local needy would be well appreciated. Needed are small loaves of baked goods plus small gifts - all homemade.

It helps if volunteer chefs have already put their baked items in small baggies, counting out two to four cookies in each bag. Those who cannot be there Friday to help, baked items can be dropped off.
