Share your memories - what was it like to live in Thurman in your day? Were things the same as today? Jot down a few notes for the John Thurman Historical Society, or better yet write a short story and send it to: PO Box 7, Athol, NY or call 623-2007. Did you learn about the world in a one-room schoolhouse where spankings were given? Did all the kids drink from the same water pail and use the same dipper? Did you walk to school? Did you wear tire patches on your winter boots? Did you walk on snowshoes to visit your neighbor in the winter months? Please share your memories!
