The VFW Post 4821 Men’s Auxiliary will be preparing the meal and providing the ingredients for the menu, which is to consist of spaghetti with sauce, garden salad and garlic bread.

Over the fence
Volunteers are still needed help organize the appreciation luncheon for the highway crew. Anyone interested should contact Evelyn Wood at 623-9649.
Warren County Bicentennial buttons are available in two versions: one variety is available from a receptacle just inside the main doors of the Town Hall. These buttons are free and very small. Thurman Station Association also has larger buttons available for a fee of $5. I have seen these buttons and they are attractive, with gold trim around the outer edges of the rectangular pin. To purchase one of these pins, contact Sally at 623-4889.
Thurmanites’ recollections sought
The John Thurman Historical Society wants your stories about bygone days in our little town. Any topic you would like to write about is fine to send in anytime, and one topic already being worked on describes the history of ice jams, floods and bridges here. If you have memories or pictures of this topic or others, the Quarterly staff would like you to phone or email to let them know. Stories and photos may be sent to: PersisGranger@aol.com or Persis Granger, 7460 SE 51st Way, Trenton, FL 32693.
The historical society is also seeking people to submit their recollections of old sayings they remember from their youth — axioms and bywords parents and grandparents used to say to children to mold their character or teach them about life. The deadline is Feb. 14, and the magazine will be published in March.
