Groundhog Day | Athol-Thurman

Fireworks on Gore Mountain the evening of Sunday, Jan. 19 caused a mild stir here in Thurman. Folks were asking one another questions on the Town facebook page, Thurman Happenings, asking who could hear the rumbling thunder-like noise. It was all settled when one resident listened to where the noise was coming from and deduced it was from the north. He logically thought of Gore Mountain and upon googling the facility found they were indeed setting off the noise makers.
