Benefit event set for Jean Wheeler
On Friday May 17 the Thurman Station Association will host a benefit sale for Claudia Jean Wheeler of Wolf Pond Stables, who suffered substantial losses in a fire which destroyed a shed that housed her chickens, as well as a great deal of equipment, tools, kids’ bikes, and the costly generator needed to power her home. Her losses reportedly aren’t covered by insurance.
The event, which offers food-to-go and beverages, will be held at the Thurman Town Hall. Proceeds are to benefit Wheeler and her family.
EMS auction set for Mothers’ Day
The personnel of Thurman Emergency Medical Services will be holding an auction at 2 p.m. May 12 at 1,000 Acres Ranch, and squad members are asking for donations of items in good condition to be brought to their headquarters on High St. from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Wednesday and Thursday prior to the auction. Contact Sally Wallace at 623-4730 to make other arrangements.
The spaghetti dinner fundraiser for Thurman E.M.S. had an excellent turnout we hear, and squad officials have expressed a heartfelt Thank You to Jim and Becky Desourdy for organizing not only the dinner, but also the recent car wash event. Thanks also go to every person who attended.
