Keeler getting help on food pantry duties
While the Myrna Keeler has been on vacation enjoying much-needed rest and relaxation, several Thurman residents have stepped up to the plate to try as best they can to fill her shoes at the Food Pantry. A big Thank You goes out to Ruth Keller and Jacqueline Mundy for being there for those who are in need. Hats off, ladies!
Readers, give us your addresses!
Please note that the Adirondack Journal’s mailing list has been updated to boost readership while cutting down on newspapers that were going to dead addresses.
The new address list is now being used. Please note that anyone formerly receiving their copy of the Adirondack Journal through a post office box — or at an apartment building — needs to call Denton Publications to keep receiving the newspaper. Also, a few readers with street addresses may have been bypassed in the new list. People who haven’t received their Adirondack Journal this last week and who reside within the newspaper’s circulation area should call and sign up for their free weekly copies.
Just call Susan at 585-9173 and give her your full address or email Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and full address.
