Annual Easter event is sure to be a hit
The annual town-sponsored Children’s Easter Party will be held Saturday April 12 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Thurman Town Hall. There will be egg coloring, crafts, the traditional basket raffles and — please note — an Easter bonnet contest. As always, there will be a delicious assortment of foods to munch and the children’s favorite, fruit punch. To volunteer to help set up — or to obtain information, call me, Kathy Templeton, at 623-2967.
Activities and events in the hills
The next monthly Thurman town board meeting is to be held Tuesday April 8 at 6:30 p.m.
The Gleaning food distribution sessions are held the first Monday of every month — and the next such event is set for 1 p.m. April 7. Be sure to bring your reusable cloth bags or plastic shopping bags to bring goods home.
Note that re-useable cloth bags, widely available, replace plastic bags which end up in landfills and garbage dumps around the world. Plastic bags can take hundreds of years to fully biodegrade — and when partially degraded they are a potential hazard to wildlife. Additionally, the plastics and chemicals used to make plastic bags can be harmful to the environment. Using cloth bags helps reduce waste, protect wildlife, and preserve the natural environment.
