Consider adopting a pet

Spring is the perfect time to adopt a pet — and choosing a suitable creature from The Pumpkin Fund is an option that is a caring thoughtful method of doing so.

This not-for-profit corporation is dedicated to healing sick or injured pets when their owners can’t afford needed treatment and are likely to choose euthanasia simply because of monetary reasons. It is the organization’s objective that by assisting in the pets’ recovery, the owner’s hearts will be relieved of the anguish of having to face such a difficult decision, and the owner in return will perform a random act of kindness for someone else in the future.

You can reach The Pumpkin Fund via email at: thepumpkinfund@gmail.com.

Jack Wax reflections

Sitting on my pantry shelf is the original pan used here in Thurman for preparing Jack Wax. It was borrowed from Rex Reynolds, whose mother Jean organized the party for decades. We hear the pan has been used to prepare the tasty confection every year for the Thurman Sugar Party since the year after its inception. Rex has stated that the pan is indeed old and dates back to the 1800s.
