History calendar now published
The John Thurman Historical Society's 2013 calendar is now back from the printer —in time for people to pick up one or several as gifts for family members or friends. The cost is $8 apiece. This year's edition of the calendar features a theme of celebrating Warren County’s bicentennial.
The calendar depicts 200 years of Thurman’s history with plenty of photographs.
The calendars are available at the Thurman Town Clerk’s office, as well as these Warrensburg locations: Rebecca's Flowers, Nemec's Sport Shop, Richards Library, Willows Bistro, Jacobs and Toney Meats and Glens Falls National Bank.
Enjoy the depictions of our town’s history, and thanks go to our readers for supporting the John Thurman Historical Society.
Hardware & variety store reopens
Local folks are pleased that Athol Hardware & Variety, located on Mountain Road near Bear Pond Road, reopened recently on a part-time basis — and they now feature a lot of essential items for the home.
Prior to the reopening, store owners Joe and Cathy Mannuci were hard at work preparing the store by painting and re-stocking the store.
The hours of the store change week to week, according to the schedule of the Mannucis. Call 623-3080 for details. Present plans call for the store to be closed from Sunday Dec. 9 through Friday Dec. 21. In the first week of January, however, the store should be open full-time with regular hours. They will be offering hardware, variety, and some used items along with collectibles and a limited line of grocery staples.
The store’s inventory is expected to include plumbing, carpentry, electrical and painting supplies, as well as necessities for home heating, including stovepipe and furnace-related items. Also, expect such household goods as batteries, emergency candles, and other essentials. Joe and Cathy welcome you to come in and browse and see what they have to offer. Also, you can keep updated on their progress on their Facebook page.
