The Thurman Town Historian is looking for information from yesteryear on important women who made a difference in town - or in residents' lives. Do you remember someone who had a major influence in your upbringing? Joan Harris would like folks to recall anecdotes and events in the 1800s and early 1900s - during their grandparents' generation. Send information to: Thurman Town Historian, Box 29, Athol, NY 12810 or to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't forget to set clocks ahead on Sunday, March 13.
