The Thurman Jack Wax party is only 57 days away and plans are really starting to come together. So make sure to reserve the date for this delicious all-you-can eat buffet with servings of ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, and a wide assortment of homemade delicacies. The crowning touch is a dessert of genuine Jack Wax — maple syrup on snow. The dinner begins at 4 p.m. and lasts until all are served. The admission is just $10 for adults, $5 for kids ages 6 through 11 and free for those 5 and under. There will be musical entertainment, mountain style, from 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
This year marks 54 years this event has taken place and all the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. This year, representatives from the American Cancer Society will be attending to recognize the town residents’ many years of generosity.
There is an event page on Facebook entitled Jack Wax Party 54th Annual, where you can sign up to donate food items or your time, or you can simply contact me, Kathy Templeton, at 623-2967 or via email at: email@example.com .

Last week I had advised readers to leave their water running during cold nights to assure that pipes won’t freeze. Well, I should have listened to myself! I woke up Wednesday morning to — you guessed it —frozen pipes. Well, now my heating tape is plugged in and on cold nights I am leaving the tap dripping. I learned a valuable lesson.
On a personal note
