Show your appreciation to the Thurman highway crew by donating a covered dish to their special Christmas hot luncheon to be held Tuesday, Dec. 14, at the town hall. Every year town folks try to say thank you by showing they notice the hard work the crew undertakes in all seasons - responding to washouts, mudslides, ice and snow as well as replacing culverts, and picking up garbage even when its scattered. For information or to let them know how you can help, call 623-9961 and mark this date on your calendar. Don't forget the boys!

May Thanksgiving be a happy time at your home, with lots of good things to eat and everyone in good health! And to those who have to work at a job on that day - may you enjoy your big meal on an earlier date! Many folks thank you for staying on the job! After all, without gas stations, grocers, motels, etc. we wouldn't have visitors to help us celebrate the holiday.

More calls were received expressing appreciation for the folks who give so much of their time through volunteerism and live by the Golden Rule. Add these names to the Journal's Nov. 6 issue of people who were identified as good neighbors. Named were Helen Baker who has helped out so many times with various projects, Joan and Vern Harris and Paula Hubert, Jed and Lisa Quinn and Pam Siletti. This list of helpers - not necessarily on Make a Difference Day - is growing. Give us a call with any more that you want mentioned at 623-2580.
