Athol-Thurman 9-18-10

Sympathy from the community is out to the family of the late Connie Stewart who passed away at Glens Falls Hospital Aug. 29. And sympathy is extended to the family of Iva Hall, who was well known in our community through all of her volunteerism. She died at home Aug. 31, just two days shy of her 87th birthday.

Also, sympathy is out to the family of Kermit Baker who passed away Sept. 5 at his home.

County home residents enjoy veggies, picnic

Folks at the Countryside Adult Home have been enjoying garden-fresh vegetables from their own garden. They planted the seeds and took turns working in the garden and now everyone is enjoying tomatoes, cucumbers and squash and will soon have pumpkins and watermelon to share. They all enjoyed the family picnic, which was held Sept. 12. Many of the residents were delighted to see their friends and family members at this special gathering. Visitors are welcome to stop at the home anytime.

Get well wishes are out to Ken Ackley, Jeff Grants, Earle Dibble, Tina Brown, Joe Mosher, Ed Feihol, Ruth Wood. and Shirley Ainsworth.

Over the fence

Did you register to vote in the upcoming general election in November? If not, registration cards are available at the Thurman Town Hall or call 761-6459 and ask for one to be mailed out.

Now that our school taxes have caused us all some worry, will things get better? I had two phone surveys in two days, one on politics and who you would vote for; and one on health insurance. Each question period took a good half hour and they gave you only multiple choices to pick your answers from. They did not want your own opinion or answer.

Now that school is back in session, perhaps some of you will find you have more free time. Perhaps now you can start writing an article on some of your childhood memories of Thurman. Keep working on it as your thoughts come about; make notes and when you are finished please share it with readers of the John Thurman Quarterly. Call 623-9305 or mail to P.O. Box 7, Athol, N.Y. 12810, and include your phone number.
