Playground work postponed
The date for the reconstruction of the Warrensburg Elementary Playground has been rescheduled to Aug. 8 through 11 due to conflicts with the company that is supplying the equipment.
The playground development project is in its final stage, and the Warrensburg Central School PTSA needs volunteers to help see this to fruition. If you could volunteer just a few hours to help build this or would like to donate refreshments, contact PTSA Treasurer Adrienne Bell at 260-6834.
Over the fence
Reviewing the calendar, it’s interesting to note that a significant anniversary has arrived this week. Twelve years ago, on July 15, 2001, the Thurman Emergency Squad was formed by dedicated volunteers.
Prior to this date, the squad was operated by the Thurman Volunteer Fire Co. Following a trend statewide, the squad members decided that the training requirements and state statutes made a joint agency unwieldy, and they decided to spin off their group to best serve the local citizens.
