(Note from Evie Russell: With Kathy busy organizing the Jack Wax party, I have been asked to write a few items for this column to help her out. Note that I urge all of you to assist her in any way you can with our town’s traditional, famous fundraiser! Incidentally, many Thurmanites say they love her column, so keep relaying your news tips to her!)
A surprise 90th birthday party was held Feb. 2 at the Thurman Town Hall to honor Laura Goodnow Cameron, who celebrated her birthday on Feb. 5. Laura is well-known in Thurman — she is a member of the Sugarloaf Mountain Seniors Club, a member of the Baptist church, and has helped raise some of her grandkids and great-grandchildren! She is well-liked and enjoys helping good causes when she can.
Sympathy goes out to the large family of Jack Dingman who passed away recently.
Get well wishes go out to Earle Dibble, Darlene Castro and to all who are ill with the flu or the persistent cold that’s going around.
Our congratulations go out to Lila Walter, who turned 98 years old on Jan. 31. Another Thurman resident is slightly ahead of Lila as far as longevity goes. Charlotte Pasco Wood will be celebrating her 100th birthday on April 19. Special Happy Birthday wishes to each of these ladies.
