Plans are progressing well for Thurman Old Home Days — a local celebration of Warren County’s bicentennial to be held June 15. Anyone interested in being part of history by creating a float or participating in the parade should contact town Supervisor Evelyn Wood at 623-9649.
Incidentally, did you know that the only town in Warren County older than Thurman is Queensbury — by a mere 30 years?
Warrensburg Elementary School will be holding an academic awards assembly on April 19 in the gymnasium. The portion focusing on grades 3 and 4 starts at 8:30 a.m. and for grades 5 and 6, at 9:30 a.m..
Report Cards will be going home on April 19 from both Warrensburg Elementary and Warrensburg High schools. It’s hard to believe, only one more marking period and summer recess begins.
Charlotte Wood’s 100th birthday

On a personal note
Ilene Baker’s son Timmy prepared and presented his famous Easter Dinner for the whole family, and 33 people attended in all! Family members came from all over the state — from Warrensburg, Chestertown, Bolton, Corinth, and Greenfield Center. Ilene says it was a beautiful dinner, and when they were finished the children cleared the table and did the dishes. The whole family chipped in afterwards and left her house just as clean as it was when they arrived, she said.
Thurmanites’ special days
Celebrating Anniversaries this week are Bruce and Pat Sherman on April 16, also Terry and Nancy Beadnell on April 19.
