Over the fence
If you stood outside in Thurman Feb. 25, you'd have seen snow was coming down all day, very heavy at times, dumping another foot on the several feet remaining on the ground. This was indeed a good example of an Adirondack winter day.
Then on Monday, March 7, we were buried again in over a foot of snow. But while other municipalities were declaring snow emergencies and officials were freaking out, Thurmanites were taking it in stride. It wasn't too many decades ago that our children were routinely taken to our local one-room school houses by horse-drawn sleighs!
With spring officially coming in this coming weekend, we are sending Get Well wishes out to all who are ill, including Cindy Crandall, Ken Ackley, Joe Mosher, Myron Cameron and Ken Baker. Hopefully we'll have warmer weather soon and that will prompt a cure.
Did you remember to send in your memories of a woman from yesteryear that had seemed to make a difference in the lives of others? Did she help you or your mother? Did she change our life? Send all information that you can remember and mail it to the Thurman Town Historian, P.O. Box 29, Athol 12810.
Our three elected officials are back home after attending the Association of Town classes in New York City. Those taking the trip were town board member Becky Hitchcock town justice Filomena Rivello and town supervisor Evelyn Wood.
