There will be two raffles and tickets will be available at most locations. A double quilt meticulously constructed by Thurmanite Avis Russell will be raffled off. This donated quilt has an estimated value of $450 excluding labor. The rich hues of blue and warm tan will make fine heritage linen in any home. The drawing will be held during the Thurman Fire Co. barbecue at Toad Hill Maple Farm. Tickets are $5 each, or five tickets for $20.
A shed frame will also be raffled off. Tickets are $5, or five for $20. This post-and-beam shed frame, worth about $1,000, was made and donated by Andy LeBlanc of Indian Lake.
During the Fall Farm Tour, Thurman Emergency medical Services at 572 High St. will be holding a bake sale, blood pressure and glucose checks, and a mini tag sale.
