Keep our cemeteries pleasant
It's getting near Memorial Day, when many folks will be visiting cemeteries in the town of Thurman to remember those who have passed on. Local regulations for decorating include:
• Do not plant any trees.
• Do not place any glass jars or use any breakable glass objects on graves.
• Dispose of any old decorations and place them in the nearest trash bin or bring a bag to carry refuse out.
• Don't bring ATVs on the lot and tear up the grounds.
• Both natural flowers or artificial ones are okay.
The town Cemetery Committee is not active at this time, so cemetery volunteers are depending on all citizens to help us keep the grounds nice.
On a personal note
How lucky can one get? With the weather so cold and snow remaining in the woods, I was shocked to be brought a bouquet of real May flowers on May Day! A gentleman in the neighborhood does never seem to forget a few of us when the May flowers are in bloom. Thanks!
May baskets were arranged and delivered Sunday, May 1 in the neighborhood. This old tradition is still being carried out in Thurman. At my household, we heard a knock at the door, so we opened it, no one was there, but a pretty little homemade basket was sitting on the porch. Those who received these nice surprises express their thanks to the May basket elves!
Anniversary wishes go out to Candi and Jerry Cameron on May 15, to Cindy and Bruce Belden on May 16, to Shelly and Roger Durkin on May 17, and to Robin and Mike Croissant on May 18.
