Old fashioned 'sugar party'
Hosting the Jack Wax party for decades has been a natural for the townfolk of Thurman, as they enjoy the socializing and good food consisting of many covered dishes donated by local residents, topped off with this delicious dessert. Stop by this event Saturday, March 12, at the town hall. The dinner is available from 4 p.m. until all are served. This is an all-you-can-eat buffet and those attending will have con
tinuous mountain-style music to listen while they eat. Tickets at the door are $10 for adults, $5 for ages 5 to 11, and under 5 are free. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society, which pledges to spend it locally. For details or to volunteer, call 623-4024.
Maple Days next weekend!
The Town of Thurman will be celebrating its annual Maple Weekend Saturday and Sunday, March 12 and 13. Many who have operating sugar houses that make their own maple syrup will have open houses and will show visitors all the steps in making tasty, pure maple syrup (see story above).
Maps are available to guide folks through Thurman to these destinations that evoke life from years past. For more information, call 623-9718.
Over the fence

It's my fault! In the Feb. 19 Adirondack Journal I said how lucky we had been recently with no power outages - then the morning after the newspaper was delivered at about 5:20 a.m., power was out for about eight hours and even all phone service was out for two and a half hours at the north end of town. It was probably due to tree limbs loaded with snow breaking and falling on utility lines.
