Events and activities in the hills
Would you like to put a smile on a forgotten veteran's face? How about joining the local Valentines for Veterans effort!
Everyone is invited to the Thurman Town Hall on Saturday Feb. 5 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to help us make valentines to be given to or sent to our veterans. All ages are needed to help. Folks can bring extra decorations for the cards if they wish, but everything is going to be available to make the basic cards. Come on down and make some original and unique valentines! Pizza follows the valentine creating session. The event is sponsored by the Thurman Youth Commission.
The John Thurman Historical Society will not meet this month, allowing all members to take a long winter's nap and to be ready for the Spring sessions, we hear.
There also will not be a town Youth Commission meeting in February, but one is being planned for March.
