Folks of all ages gathered at the Thurman Town Hall Feb. 5 to create cards expressing heartfelt sentiment, during the Valentines for Vets event sponsored by the Thurman Youth Commission. Not only were these lovely Valentines made for area veterans in the Albany VA hospital, but enough were created to spread the joy of loving thoughts to residents at the Tri County Nursing Home, Countryside Adult Home and the Turning Point Home. A total of 260 cards were created before the homemade pizza was offered to all the workers. The Youth Commission thanks everyone who gave a couple of hours of their time to put a smile on the faces of our veterans and seniors in area residential homes.
Dinner chefs wanted
Those who haven't yet been notified of the need for covered dishes or food items for the dinner at the Town Hall on March 12, please bring something savory to the town hall Saturday morning, March 12 prior to the event.
The dinner consists of a wide variety of food dishes made by Thurman's best cooks. The delicacies will be served buffet style from 4 p.m. until all are served. Of course, the dessert is the old fashioned dessert that one never tires of - maple syrup boiled down just right to make a caramel-like confection when poured over pure white snow.
If you never tasted this delicacy, you can now! The prices at the door are adults: $10, ages 6-11: $5 and 5 and under, free. A local band will playing music, mountain-style, throughout the event. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. For details, call Becky at 623-4024 or 623-9649.
