The Thurman Quilting Group holds their meetings every Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Thurman Town Hall. Bring your knitting, sewing, or quilting projects and make some new friends. For more information, contact Myra Vopleus at 623-2633.

Thurman Maple Days will once again be held the three weekends of mid-March, so area residents as well as visitors are invited to bring their families to visit all six sites.

Young and old alike enjoy watching maple syrup being made.

Four maple farms — Adirondack Gold, Valley Road, Hidden Hollow and Toad Hill — all produce maple syrup, carrying on a centuries-old tradition.

These maple farms have an array of different products, including syrup, maple sugar, maple peanuts and candies, as well as maple tea and coffee and souvenir clothing items.

Jack Wax party approaching

The 54th annual Jack Wax Party, a beloved event that benefits the American Cancer Society, will be held Saturday, March 9. Keith Davidson, an official of the agency, will be attending to recognize Thurman’s longstanding dedication to this charity. The buffet dinner begins at 4 p.m. and continues well into the evening or until everyone is served.

Save the date for this treasured event which features complimentary face painting for children, live traditional mountain music by Hoddy Ovitt & the Warren County Ramblers, and raffle drawings. Tickets will be sold for several themed gift baskets, including four tickets for an excursion on the Saratoga-North Creek Railway.

Many area businesses have donated food items or gift cards to be used for the purchase of food. Also, many more local residents have donated not only homemade food items, but their priceless time to help make sure this is an event to remember!

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making this come together so well. If you would like to donate a dish or your time or both, don’t hesitate to contact me, Kathy Templeton, at 623-2967 or by email at: feidenk33@yahoo.com.
