Citizens flock to spaghetti dinner
The spaghetti dinner and silent auction held Feb. 9 by the VFW Men’s Auxiliary Post 4821 to benefit the Warrensburg PTSA was a great success. Over 200 meals were served and all money raised will benefit reconstruction of the Warrensburg Elementary School playground. The PTSA and Men’s Auxiliary officials thank everyone who attended, ordered take-out meals, and donated auction items.
The Warrensburg PTSA is seeking donations to build a new playground at Warrensburg Elementary. The current K-3 playground is in serious need of reconstruction, as it does not meet the requirements for American with Disabilities Act. These pieces of equipment are pricey and are vital to youngsters still building their motor skills. The communities’ support of the PTSA is greatly appreciated. To become a member, come into the Elementary School and pick up application form. Adult membership is still just $7 and a student membership is only $4.
Over the fence
Unfortunately the Valentines for Vets session held on Feb. 9 from 1 – 3 p.m. was not well attended. There were five children ranging in age from 5 to 14, and four adults. Everyone worked diligently to make nearly 100 cards for residents of area nursing homes.
Time is running out to qualify for the state School Tax Relief Program (STAR) program. Applications for the program, which saves property owners hard-earned cash on their school taxes, are available at the Town Hall. The deadline for completed applications is March 1. STAR provides homeowners with two types of partial exemptions from school property taxes.
The town Board of Assessment Review consists of five who are appointed by the Town Board. The board’s function is to hear objections and concerns from property owners about their assessments. At this time, there is one seat unfilled. Anyone interested in serving on the board should write a letter of interest to the Thurman Town Clerk.
