Those interested in being part of history in the making will not want to miss Thurman’s hometown celebration of Warren County’s Bicentennial on June 15, 2013. Anyone interested in creating a float or participating in the parade is urged to contact Evelyn Wood at the town hall, 623-9649.
Thurman officials have decided to name this Bicentennial celebration “Thurman Old Home Days” to be held the evening of Friday June 14 and Sunday 15 starting and Saturday from mid-day until dusk. The celebration is to be filled with activities such as a parade, children’s games, a military encampment, live music, and fireworks.
The Thurman transfer station’s hours of operation are noon to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Special local trash bags, available for purchase either at the Town Hall or the transfer station, are necessary for depositing household refuse at the facility. Call 623-9649 or 623-4588 for the hours they can be obtained.
Those experiencing difficulty getting their trash to the Thurman transfer station may have Jim Desourdy take them there for $5 per week, or $5 per pickup as needed. Desourdy routinely picks up every Saturday starting at 9 a.m. To reach him, call 623-4254.
