Town Wide Sale signs-ups sought
All business ads for the Thurman Town Wide Sale need to be submitted by May 1. To have an ad included in the annual sale flyer, contact Sally Drexel at 623-2203.
Also, the sign-up dates for individual yard sales are Thursday May 2 through Saturday May 4.
Sale officials urge town residents to consider the major items to be included in their sale — so when they sign up, their list can be featured in the handout maps.
This year the registration fee is $3, to cover the cost of copies and advertising.
Over the fence
While driving through Thurman on April 9, I experienced my first seasonal sighting of three Great Blue Herons, plus I saw an Osprey at the pond on Glen-Athol Road. This sighting was just two days before the freak mixed-bag of precipitation we received on April 10 and 11.
Many residents are happy to be just about finished with the heating season, just in time to prepare to get our winter wood ready for next year.
Warren County Bicentennial pins are available for purchase. Contact Cheryl at 623-9718 or Sally at 623-4889 or email@example.com if you would like to buy one of these attractive pins, that are reasonably priced at $5 each.
Residents having a difficult time getting their trash to the Thurman transfer station can contact Jim Desourdy who will transport them for $5 per pickup — weekly or as needed. Jim routinely picks up every Saturday starting at 9 a.m. To reach Desourdy, call 623-4254.
Stained-glass quilter visits
Crafter Sandy Bombard visited the Thurman Quilting Group on March 25. Sandy showed members her stained glass quilt, and gave guidance to those wishing to make their own quilt.
Myra Vopleus said it was a very enjoyable experience and she hopes to have more highly experienced guests like Sandy stopping by and showing off their handiwork.
