Your memories, artifacts sought
The John Thurman Historical Society is now seeking your stories about bygone days in our rural town.
Any topic you would like to write about is fine, according to the Society representatives. One topic already being pursued by several local residents deals with ice jams, floods and bridges. If you have memories or pictures of this topic, the Quarterly staff would like you to phone or email to let them know. Also, the Society members are gathering reminiscences of old sayings local residents heard in their youth — the kinds of things parents and grandparents used to say to children to mold their character or teach them about life.
The deadline for submitting memories and sayings is Feb. 14, and the magazine will be published in March. Stories and photos may be sent via email to: PersisGranger@aol.com or via U.S. mail to: Persis Granger, 7460 SE 51st Way, Trenton, FL 32693.
