Additionally, the school is involved in Price Chopper’s Tools For Schools program, however in order for our school to receive credit for your purchases you must register your card at the customer service desk — merely presenting your card at checkout does not credit points for the school. Such registration takes only a few moments at the Customer Service desk. I hear Warrensburg Central currently has 27 families registered.
Over the fence
Recently I wrote in this column about the amount of litter there has been on our Thurman roads. I heard from Gary Martin that in the past week he has seen people walking the roads picking up the trash. He has seen a couple of young mothers with their four children, plus a grandmother and her grandchildren ages 2 &1/2 and 5 years old picking up refuse along the roadways. Also Wini Martin and her friend Ellen have been routinely walking Thurman roads, picking up others’ carelessly discarded trash. Kudos to all of them for beautifying our rural town.
