Residents’ reminiscences sought
Have you lived in Thurman for a few years? A lifetime? The John Thurman Historical Society is now seeking your stories about bygone days in our little town.
Any topic you would like to write about is fine, according to society members.
One topic already being worked on deals with ice jams, floods and bridges. Do you have memories of experiences with these? Or perhaps you have photographs?
The Quarterly staff would like you to phone or email to let them know. Stories and photos may be emailed or mailed to Perky Granger at: PersisGranger@aol.com or Persis Granger, 7460 SE 51st Way, Trenton, FL, 32693.
Another thing the society would like to have are any old sayings you remember from your youth, the kinds of things parents and grandparents used to say to children to mold their character or teach them about life. Please send all material — no later than Valentine's Day, but earlier is better. The next Quarterly magazine will be published in March.
Valentine for Veterans slated
Our local children will soon be participating in an outreach to our veterans that shows they really care for them — remembering them on a treasured holiday — as well as demonstrating respect for their service to our nation.
The Valentines for Vets event, in which children create thoughtful cards to be sent to veterans, will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday Feb. 9 at the Thurman Town Hall. The event, which includes refreshments, is held at no charge and is sponsored by the Thurman Youth Commission. To help out or obtain details, call 623-2249.
Over the fence
Volunteers are still needed help organize the annual appreciation luncheon for the highway crew. Anyone interested should contact Evelyn Wood at 623-9649.
Thurman residents who seek to express pride about living in Warren County are welcome to obtain commemorative county Bicentennial buttons, at no charge, from the town of Thurman. A supply of the Bicentennial buttons is located just inside the main doors of the town hall. Stop in a grab one for your scrap book — I did!
