The organizers of the Thurman Townwide Sale express their thanks to all businesses and individuals who either paid for ads or sale listings which helped offset the sale expenses.
Those who held yard sales during the recent event are reminded to take down any signs they posted and return to town hall any that are reusable. A container for the signs is in the entryway. Also, any leftover map booklets should not be discarded, and may be placed there as well.
Thurmanites fight area blazes
While Warrensburg firefighters were attending to a fire on Pine Mountain this last week, Thurman Fire Department members were busy taking other calls, such as a large brush fire in Stony Creek — plus tending to a tree and power lines down in the roadway on Parker Cross Road.
While conducting their coin drop May 18 at Thurman Station, Thurman firefighters were called away to provide a tanker to combat a large brush fire that was burning down camp properties off state Rte. 28 in Warrensburg. Thurman Fire Dept. needed to fill all of their tankers with water and ended up using a hydrant at the Warrensburg transfer station to do so.
New hydrants to be installed
We hear there will be several dry hydrants to be installed throughout Thurman in the coming weeks. The first to be installed will be on Garnet Lake Road South and the Conine family has generously offered the use of their pond.
