Now is the time to begin collecting and pricing goodies for the annual Thurman Townwide Sale, to be held May 16, 17 and 18. As always, the tiny planning committee asks for your help. If you plan to sell, please be sure to mark May 1, 2 and 3 so you don’t forget to register your sale with volunteers between 2 and 6 p.m. Not only does the committee rely on your $3 donation to help fund printing and ad costs, but your signing up helps us show garage sale fanatics how many sellers Thurman will have that weekend, and what enticing wares are for sale.
