Gardeners & artisans sought
The first of 2012’s summer concerts in the Thurman town park — offered weekly on Mondays — was very enjoyable July 2 and it had a great turnout.
The fireworks show was spectacular — however, there were no local vendors, gardeners or artisans, as was expected.
Thurman residents who wish to sell their wares at the weekly concerts are urged to call the town hall at 623-9649 to reserve a space. Set up time for the market is 6:30 p.m.
This week’s free Monday concert will feature Hoddy Ovitt and the Warren County Ramblers with their traditional bluegrass tunes.
A favorite in our region, this bluegrass group showcases Ovitt on guitar and six-string banjo; Johnny Mosher on mandolin, guitar and lead vocals; Kenny Myers picking bass and Pete Bolster on guitar.
Light refreshments will be available. Youngsters can enjoy the playground at the field. Guests may wish to bring a comfortable chair and wear layered clothing for varying Adirondack weather.
