Preparations are progressing for Thurman’s 54th annual Jack Wax Party to be held Saturday March 9. The event benefits the American Cancer Society.
This event requires months of advance work to make it as successful as it has been for decades. Before I volunteered to organize the Jack Wax Party, I had no idea how much went into making sure this event was held without a hitch — well, I am the wiser now!
Many area businesses have volunteered food items or gift cards to be used for the purchase of food. Also, many more local residents have volunteered not only to prepare homemade food items, but donated their priceless time to help make sure this is an event to remember. I just have to 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, please do not hesitate to call me, Kathy Templeton, at 623-2967 or if email is more convenient, send me a message at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

All are welcome to check with local and county authorities on details of the program.
Have noticed that there hasn’t yet been a tribute luncheon held this year for the town highway crew? These men do such a good job clearing our roads and sanding them to assure we can drive safely. The luncheon has been a way to thank them for their hard work. Anyone interested in organizing a luncheon is asked to contact Evelyn at the Town Hall at 623-2967 to volunteer.
