Relocating to Thomson
Are you ready to slow down and relax a little? Do you just need a place where you can take a deep breath, look around, and kick up your feet for a while?
Thanks to everyone who attended yesterday’s Christmas Party at the fire station. Chief Balk says we had a record turnout! Santa said all of the kids were as good as gold, and everyone will get everything they asked for! Kiley Foltz, you are out of luck because you didn’t ask him for that puppy.
The Community Dinner will be December 14 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Donald Ashpole American Legion Post. There will be an amazing array of turkey and ham with all the trimmings, plus side dishes and desserts lovingly created by Thomson’s finest cooks. The meal is provided free of charge; however, donations are gratefully accepted.
