With fuel prices rising, learning how to make a warm quilt to keep your family warm is a skill unlike any other. The Thurman Quilting Group holds their meetings at the Thurman Town hall every Monday. This week’s session occurs March 10 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Light refreshments and tea or coffee are offered. For details, contact Myra at 623-2633.
The county-sponsored senior bus service to Glens Falls makes its trips twice a month on the second and fourth Friday. The next scheduled trip will occur March 14. This is a wonderful opportunity for home-bound seniors to get out of the house, visit with other Thurmanites and get a little shopping done. The service is not only for doctors’ visits, though. The bus service will take you just about anywhere in the Glens Falls region for hair appointments, grabbing a bite to eat or just to enjoy the ride and have a chance to socialize. To arrange pickup, contact Laura by March 12 with directions to your home and she will make sure you are picked up. You can reach Laura at 623-9281.
