The first snow flurries of the season came down from Crane Mountain during the first week in November when daytime highs in Kenyontown didnt make it to 40 degrees. The 26 filled shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child from Thurman folks were turned in Nov. 10 and with the boxes from the Warrensburg Methodist Church, the total was 72 boxes on their way to needy children overseas.
